On January 30, 2016, Kerr’s volleyball team, the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels had a chance to participate in SickKids Icewave Volleyball Challenge in support of childhood cancer research at SickKids Foundation. We went above our fundraising goal of $1,000.00 and pledged $1,128.00 to the fight against childhood cancer!
Right now, there are more than 800 children in treatment for cancer alone at SickKids Hospital in Toronto. With approximately 320 new cases of cancer diagnosed each year at SickKids, the rate of occurrence continues to rise. Cancer is the most common cause of disease-related death in Canadian children.
The SickKids Icewave Volleyball Challenge was a welcomed day on the beach in the middle of winter! Thanks to the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel’s team members (left to right) Lyndon, Nathan, Jeboah, Whitney and Raisa. See pictures of the event below!
