Building a Hospital that inspires and enables our people to take on the greatest challenges in child health is an ambitious and lofty goal. And it is possible. Today, the first of our new buildings is physically rising, now five stories above ground. The Patient Support Centre at Elizabeth and Elm will rise 22 stories, house our medical teams, students and education facilities, simulation centre, and many outpatient clinics as well as being the centre for virtual care. We are on time and on budget to open in 2023. Our research and care also continue to advance by leaps and bounds, as we tackle everything from the mental health crisis to advances in IBD, Cancer and Heart. And with Precision Child Health our emerging approach to care, we will make even greater strides in rapidly and definitively diagnosing patients and improving their care and outcomes.
Last year, I was humbled to have supporters provide over $20,000 in funding as I exceeded my September activity goal of 180 km of activity (swimming and walking). This year, with the threat of pool closures looming again, I decided to make August and September my GetLoud months. And I more than doubled my targets to 500km of total activity. It's a stretch--but I am also asking all of the SickKids supporters to whom I appeal to stretch and help me get to and surpass last year's fundraising achievement.
I set an initial goal of $20,000 and made the opening pledge; incredible donors have pushed results to over $30,000, so now I have set a target of getting to $35,000. Please join me and SickKids and help me push to and past this goal and help build a new hospital.
Thank you for responding generously in the past, and for supporting SickKids once again.
