This year will be different but we are committed to GetLoud to support the hospital that was there for us, when our family needed it the most. In 2009 @ 3 years old, our daughter, Jayden was sent to SickKids when she started "walking funny". Her symptoms progressed dramatically with psychosis like behaviour, odd movements and eventually seizures. Luckily for us, the incredible nurses & doctors at the hospital took phenomenal care of her and diagnosed her with a newly discovered disease, anti-NMDAR Encephalitis. Thanks to all the hard work and her targeted treatment, we are happy to say that she's a happy, healthy teenager, starting high school in September.
We are extremely proud to be considered part of the SickKids family and will always do our part to GetLoud to raise awareness and funds for this WORLD CLASS institution! This year will be different but we commit to getting active throughout September to help raise funds to build a new SickKids!

Let’s run, walk or ride for SickKids. When we unite in the fight against limits at SickKids, we’re unstoppable.
This September, our team is committed to getting active and fundraising for SickKids GetLoud presented by PCL Construction. We’re joining thousands of other SickKids supporters to build a new SickKids. $2 million is our collective fundraising goal, and it’s going to take all of us to get there.
SickKids has always been on the front lines in the fight for children’s health. But the clinical facilities at SickKids are close to 70 years old. Today, one of the biggest battles at SickKids is against the limits of an old building.
