    Be A Hero

    Meet Charlotte

    Five year old Charlotte is this year’s child ambassador, cancer survivor and daughter of YRP Const. Joe Wilson. Const. Wilson expressed the importance of outpatient care received at Southlake’s Paediatric Oncology Unit, supporting families in the neighbourhood who require healthcare closer to home.

    Be A Hero

    Southlake’s Paediatric Oncology Clinic provides essential healthcare in partnership with Sick Kids Hospital and the Paediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) – close to home for young cancer patients in our communities. Donations today will help Southlake toward expanding paediatric oncology care. The expansion will see the clinic increase with patient visits by 20%, advance supportive care and broaden the scope of chemotherapy treatments.

    Head Shave Event

    Be A Hero Head Shave event will be taking place right here at Upper Canada! Funds raised at this event will ensure Southlake’s Paediatric Oncology Unit have the tools and support so children dont have to travel to Sick Kids or dowtown for their care. This year’s fundraising goal is $100,000.
