This Year’s Beneficiaries

Who they are and what they’re all about


This year's First Beneficiary: Ronald McDonald House Charities BC Yukon

With just 16 specialty children’s hospitals in Canada, many families must travel long distances to access medical treatment for their sick child. When families learn their child is sick and requires hospitalization, they are forced to leave their homes, families, jobs and community support at a time when they need them the most. That’s where Ronald McDonald House Charities steps in, providing a place for families to stay together, steps away from a children’s hospital.
