We are thrilled to announce that Toronto Rehab Foundation’s Where Incredible Happens Campaign has achieved its $100-million goal - a new fundraising landmark for rehabilitation in Canada – while helping shine a light on Toronto Rehab.

An amazing contingent of donors, volunteers and staff celebrated this achievement at Toronto Rehab’s University Centre on September 26, 2018. Trees were beautifully lit in front of the building to help broadcast that Toronto Rehab is one of the brightest lights in Canadian healthcare. View photos

“With 1,000 Canadians turning 65 every day, Toronto Rehab has an important place in the continuum of care through prevention and rehab programs as well as the research behind it,” says Cindy Yelle, President and CEO of Toronto Rehab Foundation. 

“This milestone will help accelerate the pace of progress, from scientific discoveries to meaningful patient treatments. It will allow us to create revolutionary technologies that bring hope to millions of people in Canada and around the world. And it will continue to make Toronto Rehab a place Where Incredible Happens.”

Key ways that campaign support is helping make incredible happen include:

  • Injecting targeted support to research studies in areas such as pain, concussion, Multiple Sclerosis, sleep apnea and swallowing.
  • Expanding virtual outreach through initiatives such as Health E-University that is helping people prevent and manage chronic disease such as heart disease and diabetes.
  • Rejuvenating Toronto Rehab facilities, including those providing Complex Continuing Care, Cardiac Rehab and Spinal Cord Rehab, to help patients and families feel comfortable, confident and well supported, while meeting their needs for privacy and personalized care.
  • Better equipping patient programs and establishing new initiatives such as a Transitional Care Centre of Excellence.
  • Establishing education awards to enhance the professional development of clinicians in Toronto Rehab so that they are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to provide the best care possible.
Over the coming months, we look forward to sharing inspiring stories about Toronto Rehab Foundation’s extraordinary donors and volunteers and more about the initiatives that the campaign is supporting - and what is next on the horizon.

To everyone who has helped Toronto Rehab continue to be Where Incredible Happens, thank you!
