Get loud for Sick Kids

John G Smith

TORONTO, Ont. – A fundraising team led by representatives of Apps Transport Group, Motive Media, and Trailcon Leasing is calling on Ontario’s trucking industry to help in a campaign to raise $50,000 for Sick Kids Hospital.

Supported by a fully wrapped truck to promote the cause, a fundraising group has been set up at Simply choose Ontario Trucking Industry as the company name to join or donate. Individual teams can also be created under the group.

The initiative is part of a Sept. 29 march and festival for Sick Kids Foundation.

“Sadly, we all know someone affected by childhood illness – some of us have even known children who have required the wonderful care from Sick Kids Hospital. This is a perfect opportunity to give back – Sick Kids wouldn’t be the hospital it is today without fundraising,” the campaign team says in a release. “Let’s represent our industry as the caring and generous people that we are, and join forces to reach our goal.”
