The charity I am supporting is the CHEO Foundation.
Charities need us more than ever and that is why I’ve signed up for the first-ever global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to raise much-needed funds for youth charities around the world.
I am participating in the RBC Race for the Kids event to support mental health programs at CHEO. Your donation will ensure each patient has access to the care that will be most beneficial for them, regardless of their age or the reason for their visit.
Please consider making a donation to my page.
Thank you from me and all the RBC Race for the Kids participants and charities!

Jonny is running for CHEOMonday 5th Oct When he was just 6 months old, Jonny was diagnosed at CHEO with craniosynostosis. Craniosynostosis is a birth defect in which the bones in a baby’s skull join together too early. This happens before the baby’s brain is fully formed. As the baby’s brain grows, the skull can become misshapen. The spaces between a typical baby’s skull bones are filled with flexible material and called sutures. These sutures allow the skull to grow as the baby’s brain grows. Around two years of age, a child’s skull bones begin to join together because the sutures become bone. When this occurs, the suture is said to “close.” In a baby with craniosynostosis, one or more of the sutures closes too early.
