Zeton Receives “SickKids Believe Award” for Charitable Fundraising Efforts
September 5, 2014
On September 5, 2014, Zeton was presented with “The SickKids Believe Award” by SickKids Foundation/ Heatwave Events, in recognition of being the top fundraising team in the 2014 Heatwave Halton charity beach volleyball tournament. The ceremony included a very inspiring speech from a previous patient of the Hospital for Sick Children, and a SickKids Ambassador, Alexandra, who told her story of being diagnosed with a rare form of childhood bone cancer at the age of 13 and her extensive treatments over the next 7 years. The care that she received would not have been possible without the fundraising support from events such as Heatwave and the generosity of all those who have donated.
This year’s annual Heatwave tournament, held earlier in June 2014, saw Zeton teams compete for the fifth year in a row, and resulted in Zeton being crowned tournament champions for the third time in five years. Zeton is proud to be a part of this event and congratulates all participants and fundraising contributors for their outstanding success both on and off the volleyball court!
