Proceeds of this event are being split 50/50 between two Canadian organizations: the recently merged Coast to Coast Against Cancer and Childhood Cancer Canada along with Make-A-Wish® Canada.
As Make-A-Wish® Canada, our mission is to provide children with critical illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish, giving them the strength to endure their treatments and build resilience.
The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish® Canada announced their merger on Oct. 2, 2019 with the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child across the country together. Now united as Make-A-Wish® Canada the organization will have the ability to make a greater difference in the communities it supports, increasing its ability to grant wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses by 25 per cent more each year.
