Honda Canada raises more than $ 120,000 for Make-A-Wish Canada
July 31 2019,
The Honda Canada Foundation took advantage of the Honda Indy weekend in Toronto and the generosity of racing fans to raise more than $ 120,000 for Make-A-Wish Canada.
This year, the HCF launched an online portal offering race fans from across the country the opportunity to join in Honda Indy Toronto fundraising activities in support of Make-A-Wish for the chance to win unique prizes and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. In the week leading up to the race, the HCF also contributed an additional $25,000 to the fundraising effort at a special event hosted by Canadian IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe.
“On behalf of everyone at Make-A-Wish, I want to thank Indy fans, the Ontario Honda Dealers Association and the Honda Canada Foundation for their incredible generosity this weekend,” said Jennifer Klotz-Ritter, president & CEO, Make-A-Wish Canada. “When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope – a powerful combination that may lead to better health outcomes. We are so grateful for the support we receive from Indy and its role in our ability to support children with critical illnesses across Canada.”
