My CHEO Story

Back in 2008 our daughter was involved in a preventable injury that left us at CHEO for a short stint, but the impact it left on us made us want to give back and raise funds towards preventable injuries, more specifically, the concussion clinic. For many years, my wife and I have been running events and raising awareness towards concussion management and started our own charity called ‘Kids Play Safe’

Why I'm involved

Everyone has a story and from those stories comes amazing work and research. I am very passionate about giving back and supporting areas that I don’t fully understand but realize awareness needs to be created to help make lives better.
