To Whom It May Concern:
SickKids Foundation is extremely pleased to recommend to you an exciting opportunity to support The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) through the R4WS – Ride 4 Williams Syndrome (formerly known as Ride for Christian – Williams Syndrome) event which is a community fundraiser that supports the Williams Syndrome Research Fund and the work of Dr. Ronald Cohn, Chief of Genetics at The Hospital for Sick Children. This year’s event will be held on July 30, 2017.
The Ride 4 Williams Syndrome started in 2014 as the first-ever cycling event held as a tribute to individuals living with the genetic condition, Williams Syndrome and to date, the ride has raised $50,000 for the hospital.
Because of the support SickKids receives from this event and other initiatives like it, important advances have been made in child health research, new life-saving medical equipment has been purchased for our clinics and operating rooms, and our young patients continue to receive the best care that science, technology, and compassion have to offer – here in Canada and around the world.
In order to ensure success, the organizers of R4WS – Ride 4 Williams Syndrome require support from companies, organizations, and individuals who share their vision and hope for improved child health. It is my hope that you will consider supporting this initiative. Your commitment will not only ensure that this event is a fundraising success, it will also make a real difference in the lives of children today and for generations to come.
If you are able to lend your support to this event, please accept our deepest gratitude. Please note this letter is valid for one year from the date issued. Should you have any questions, please contact me at (416) 813-6166 x 2234.
