Every summer a record or two is shattered in the Greater Toronto Area. It could be a weather record, an attendance record, or in the case of Osler Foundation, a fundraising record. Earlier this summer I wrote about the exciting events happening in support of Osler Foundation and we’ve kicked it off in true Osler style.
Brampton Invitational is a hole-in-one
We weren’t kidding when we said we had teed up an exciting day on the links. The Osler Open: Brampton Invitational, presented by DG Group, brought out 200 golfers to raise $312,000 to equip the new Peel Memorial and fund the next generation of diagnostic equipment and technology at Brampton Civic.
This annual event is always a big draw. Her Worship Linda Jeffery, Mayor of Brampton, was in attendance as were a host of other dignitaries including the Chair of the Regional Municipality of Peel Police Services Board, as well as city and regional councillors. It was heartening to see members of the community, as well as community leaders, driving home their support for high-quality health care close to home.

Walk ‘n Roll was one to remember
Presented by Whole Health Pharmacy Partners, the third annual Osler Walk ’n Roll Fest for Healthy Kids saw hundreds of participants from across Etobicoke walk and wheel their way around the 5K route at Woodbine Racetrack to raise vital funds for children’s health programs at Etobicoke General Hospital.
The annual event reached a new fundraising milestone, which is expected to top $105,000, a total that will be matched by the $15 Million Matching Challenge to bring us to a total of $210,000! All funds raised will go towards equipping the new NICU and expanded Labour and Delivery Unit in Etobicoke General’s new patient tower – which is currently under construction.
Each year the Walk ‘n Roll gets bigger and better. At the finish line, walkers and rollers were greeted by a healthy lunch and a family friendly festival that included bounce houses, face painting, a petting zoo and games.

Teeing off for fall
We will say goodbye to summer with our annual Osler Open: Etobicoke Invitational at the Lambton Golf & Country Club on September 18. This event is sure to sell out so register now to guarantee you can tee-off with your “fore-some.” Proceeds from the tournament will help support the development of the new four-storey patient tower at Etobicoke General.
Osler has always relied on the generosity of the community to equip our spaces and help fund our redevelopment projects. Thank you for your ongoing support of Osler Foundation – we couldn’t to what we do without you!
