Irene - Team Alessandra!
Amount Raised
Fundraising Goal $2,200.00

I am fundraising for Holland Bloorview with Capes for Kids!  

There's a very special little lady in my life that has benefited and continues to thrive through the treatment, support and the wonderful staff at the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Canada's largest pediatric rehabilitation hospital in Toronto. 

I will never forget that time when 3 year old Alessandra explained to me how she couldn't walk because when her little brain sends signals to her legs, her legs can't understand the signals. To have this tiny little child explain cerebral palsy and to own it so bravely nearly brought me to tears.

Since then, seeing her get stronger and feel so empowered by her mobility is inspiring.  She now takes every opportunity to show me how fast she can ride her bike or how quickly she can walk and even hop with her walker. I want all kids who face similar challenges to have the same opporunity to feel like they can take on the world!

You can be a hero too! Together, we will:

Help kids and teens move, speak, play and grow through therapy, programs and services

Inspire research that will challenge limits and unlock capabilities

Support families to stay strong, stay grounded and to keep moving forward through family-focused care

Thank you so much for your support!
