More than 400 people and 40 teams participated in Give a Shift this past weekend to honour UHN’s healthcare heroes in an incredible first-of-its-kind virtual fundraising event. Over three days, participants spent 12 hours completing tasks and challenges to give them a glimpse into the life of a healthcare worker – all in support of UHN.
The event raised more than $250,000 coming from more than 1,200 donations! Funds raised through Give a Shift will directly support frontline workers as they battle the third wave of COVID-19, providing them with meal vouchers and mental health support, among other things, so they can care for themselves while caring for others.

We’d like to thank everyone who participated in this event, who demonstrated their gratitude for UHN’s healthcare heroes, and made a lasting impact on the lives of patients. You ensure we can continue our mission to build a healthier world for all.
We hope you’ll join us next year!
