  • Make-A-Wish Welcomes Back Colliers International as Sponsor of Rope for Hope Toronto 2018


April 26, 2018, TORONTO — Make-A-Wish® Toronto & Central Ontario is pleased to announce that Colliers International will return as Participant Champion Sponsor of Rope for Hope Toronto on Friday, June 8, 2018.


“We are excited to once again partner with Colliers on our Rope for Hope fundraising event,” says Sheila Rees, regional director, Make-A-Wish Toronto & Central Ontario. “Last year, its team contributed $15,000 towards the fundraising efforts of Rope for Hope Toronto participants, helping us create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses in the community. We thank Colliers for its thoughtful support of our mission and its efforts to move us closer to our Rope for Hope fundraising goal of $360,000.”


This year, Colliers will generously donate $100 to the first 150 individuals who register for the Toronto event.


Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope is the signature fundraiser for Make-A-Wish® Canada. Rappelling events will take place in 12 cities across the country from May through September 2018. Participants must raise a minimum of $1,500 to help grant wishes for local children, and in return, they are given the opportunity to rappel down a city skyscraper.


Toronto participants will rappel 30 storeys down Toronto City Hall’s east tower on June 8. All money raised will help grant wishes in the region.


“This event helps to support young, courageous children while solidifying the premise of the program into our consciousness,” says Gigi Farrell, director, marketing, eastern Canada, Colliers International. “The foundation helps children replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope as part of the healing process. Rope for Hope is similar. Our brave people will rappel off City Hall facing their fears, hearts racing with joy while providing hope for these kids. Even our supporters will be filled with the energy accompanying such an exciting and worthwhile fundraiser. Colliers is proud to support Make-A-Wish and more deeply understand the real purpose of the program.”
