Golf for Heart Classic presented by Scotia Wealth Management
Golf for Heart Classic presented by Scotia Wealth Management was held on June 6, 2023, at Eagles Nest Golf Club. This year’s sold-out tournament raised more than $900,000 in support of Precision Medicine at Peter Munk Cardiac Centre at UHN.
This tournament is one of Toronto’s most exclusive charity golf tournaments, with participants treated to food stations around the course from some of our city’s finest restaurants. This year’s on course food supporters included Alo, Opus, L-eat Catering, Sotto Sotto and Noce.
A special thank you to event chairs Todd Halpern (UHN Trustee and UHN Foundation Board Member), his son Adam Halpern and his brother Colin Halpern.
Golf to Live On Presented by Philip Orsino and Family
The 3rd annual Golf to Live On Presented by Philip Orsino and Family took place on June 15, 2023 at Eagles Nest Golf Club. Thanks to the generosity of all sponsors, golfers, and donors, more than $414,000 was raised to support UHN’s Ajmera Transplant Centre and the Centre for Living Organ Donation.
The gloomy weather certainly did not dampen the spirts of the 142 golfers in attendance who enjoyed a day of great golf, delicious on-course food, bevvies & beats all while celebrating the gift to Live On.
This event would not have been possible without the dedication of co-chairs, Joanne Kearney (Vice-Chair, UHN Foundation Board), her husband, Brendan Cahill and Philip Orsino (UHN Foundation Board Member).
Rally for Rehab presented by BMO
On September 10, 2023, the annual Rally for Rehab, presented by BMO took place with a morning full of activities that included an opening ceremony with warm-ups and stretching, an accessible family-friendly walk and on-site activities for the whole family.
We saw more than 300 participants including sponsors, donors, community members, and TeamUHN come together to support Toronto Rehab and its research arm, KITE Research Institute.
One of the highlights was with Chloe Angus and Human In Motion Robotics, a Canadian company, who are developing the world’s most advanced exoskeleton providing independent human mobility. They, along with Dr. Cathy Craven and her team at KITE Research Institute, are working together to bring the first exoskeleton of its kind to Toronto patients. We all got a first look at the exoskeleton at today’s event. A Phase 2 clinical trial starts next week at Toronto Rehab’s Lyndhurst Centre that will enable patients to use this device as part of their rehabilitation journey.
A special thanks to BMO, Barbara Muir (UHN Foundation Board Member), Lara Kaufman, Kevin Rempel, Human In Motion Robotics and everyone who supported Rally for Rehab in raising more than $180,000 (and counting!) in support of Toronto Rehab at UHN.
