One of the most challenging parts to the planning was finding a venue. When we were invited to join the KidsFest celebrations with Tina Doull on Centre Island, we jumped at the opportunity. Tina and her team were supportive and accommodating throughout the entire process.
Our main sponsor was Howard J. Fergusson and Sun Life Financial, and we had a long list of additional sponsors that helped make this event a success.
On the day – July 5th, 2014, the weather was beautiful and the people showed up in droves. We couldn’t believe the interest and support we were getting from our friends, family and perfect strangers. We ended up breaking the existing record with 588 people in attendance and we raised $20, 198.50 for Sick Kids Hospital for brain tumour research, in memory of our beloved friend Eden Worth.
It was an incredible accomplishment, a testimony of all the hard work and the belief in paying it forward.
