When Hilldale Public School heard about their fellow classmate and special needs student, Lucas Blackwood's major surgery next week, they knew they had to do something. As part of Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital's "Capes for kids" fundraising campaign, students and staff donned superhero capes in support of their classmate.
The entire Hilldale community immediately gathered to partake in this fundraising campaign by having students share daily announcements and create signs to encourage everyone to donate a toonie to raise awareness and support.
The Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital is encouraging kids to wear capes in support of its campaign from March 5 to 11, 2018. The proceeds from this fundraiser will support patients rehabilitation in the hospital, including Blackwood who will make his recovery at the hospital after his surgery.
