This year, Mark Hughes and some fellow mates will be trekking Mt. Everest. Why? To raise funds for the Mark Hughes Foundation to continue their tackle against brain cancer.
Each year, Mark and some well known mates, like Paul “Chief” Harrigan, conquer something amazing to assist in the ongoing fundraising for the foundation. Last year, a team took on the Kokoda Coast to Coast Challenge (Bike – Trek – Bike) from 6 to 16 June. The challenge brought fears, tears, injuries, laughter, smile and accomplishment. It also raised a large sum for the Mark Hughes Foundation. So, this year it’s Everest.
And we’re helping!
We’ve launched our very own “$ for $” Mark Hughes Foundation fundraising campaign, which will donated in support of their Mt. Everest Trek. Don’t get me wrong, funds raised will not cover their costs, flights, or gear, it will be wholeheartedly, 100% donated to MHF.
The Club has set up a donation point in the foyer for all those who wish to donate, any amount. We’ve even got beanies for sale. If you missed out before, you can now purchase one from Reception. Which leads me to the whole point of this blog…’Blue & Beanies’ day.
On Friday 18 and Saturday 19 August, the Club will be allowing Staff, Management, Directors, Members and Guests to wear their MHF beanies in the Club, they’ll also be dressed in blue, to assist in raising awareness of our campaign and the “brain cancer tackle”.
Every dollar that is dropped into our donation point, every dollar calculated from the sale of beanies, will be totalled for the Club to match. In short, whatever the members, guests and staff have donated and raised, will double when the Club adds in its own donation.
The Toronto Workers Club $ for $ campaign will end Saturday 7 October 2017.
