The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Foundation is proud to announce that the first annual Toonie Challenge raised $14,012 in support of The Best Care for Life Campaign. Launched in collaboration with the Quebec Association of Independent Schools (QAIS), students collected toonies for the MUHC Foundation with a long-term objective of raising 69,000 toonies to circle the entire Glen site if placed end-to-end.
The goal of the Toonie Challenge is for students in Montreal schools to collect toonies for the MUHC Foundation, to raise awareness of the needs of the hospital, and to engage students and their schools in an active relationship with the MUHC.
All funds raised this year will go towards completing the MUHC's Best Care for Life Campaign, which supports the building of the new Glen hospital facility that will be completed in the fall of 2014.
