Communities Coming Together

Sunshine is fortunate to have the support of many community-led fundraising events across Canada, engaging families and friends in the common goal of raising funds for Sunshine Dreams. Each event is different; some are large, some are small, but they are all organized by caring individuals who want to make a difference in the life of a child living with a severe physical disability or life threatening illness.

A few examples of the support we received from communities across Canada in 2016:

• Crop for Kids – St John’s, Newfoundland
• Amanda Marascio Circle of Hope Golf Tournament – Uxbridge, Ontario
• Christmas Gift Wrapping – Kelowna, British Columbia
• Catan 4 Kidz – Toronto, Ontario
• Country Garden Tour – Maple Ridge, British Columbia
• An Evening with Brushes – Halifax, Nova Scotia

Thank you to all our community fundraisers for your creativity and dedication to Sunshine – you are dream makers!

More than anything, Nathan wanted to be able to ride a bike. Living with cerebral palsy, this simple act performed by kids all across the country seemed like an unattainable dream.
