A letter from
our leaders

Over the past year, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital and Foundation tapped into a powerful resource like never before – the voices of the kids and youth we serve. Their moving insights, delivered through the groundbreaking Dear Everybody campaign, started a national movement focused on ending disability stigma and breaking down barriers.

That movement, together with the launch of our new No Boundaries strategic plan, has created a groundswell of impact: a new concussion program that eases stress, a nurse’s award-winning clinical research to help families deal with brain injuries, exciting genetic research for cerebral palsy, social and career development programs for youth and hundreds of caped superheroes raising funds and sparking conversation about disability inclusion.

So much of what was achieved could not have been accomplished without you, our incredible community. When you have the support of steadfast allies and generous donors, anything is possible. Thank you. Your impact matters.
