We're dancing to make a difference for sick kids!

When a child is injured, or diagnosed with a serious illness, it affects the whole family. Lives can be turned upside down, and puts families under enormous pressure. For many families, it can feel like it’s impossible to hold it together.

That’s why we’re joining Ronald McDonald House Charities to Dance for Sick Kids this year.

We’ll be dancing to make a difference every day for 7 days, to raise money that will help families stay in a home-away-from-home, access emotional and financial support, and more. From day one in the hospital and for as long as it takes, your help ensures that families don’t have to navigate the challenges of illness or injury alone.

Please support us by making a tax-deductible donation to our challenge. Your generosity will make sure that Ronald McDonald House Charities can support even more families with a seriously ill or injured child when they need it most.

Thanks to all the generous people who’ve donated to our challenge.
