Congratulations to everyone who took part in Toronto Rehab Foundation's 11th annual On Track to Cardiac Recovery walk.


Supporting the 'rehab journey'

On Track demonstrates the power of community and the immeasurable value of supporting each other through the rehab journey.

The event reached its fundraising goal of $150,000 in support of Toronto Rehab's Cardiac Rehab program and Canada's first Cardiac College. Toronto Rehab's Cardiac College is an easy to access, online and best-in-class educational curriculum for the cardiac rehab population.

"This outpouring support will not only help our current patients on their journey to recovery, but those who will visit Toronto Rehab in the months and years ahead," said Cindy Yelle, President and CEO, Toronto Rehab Foundation. "Many thanks to all who attended and contributed, making this year our most successful walk yet." 


Sponsor support

None of this would be possible without the support of sponsors: Yorkville Asset Management Inc.; KPMG, The O'Grady Group; Deloitte; Scotiabank, Howard J. Fergusson Insurance Agencies; Sun Life Financial, Thomas Large & Singer, AGF, Jason Kroft and Family, and David's Condiments.

Thank you to Sue Jewell, Executive Lead for Toronto Rehab, who came to lend her support along with City Councillor John Parker.

As always, the event came together because of the dedication of On Track Chair Jim Chestnutt and the dedicated staff and volunteers at the Rumsey Cardiac site, including Dr. Paul Oh, Rob Bertelink and Valerie Skeffington. 

Program graduate Roberto Lio was our top fundraiser, raising $15,000 and Jessica Coriat was the runner-up, raising $12,000.
