TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- In recognition of its 50th anniversary, TU Group, a longtime national partner of Make-A-Wish® Canada, has committed to raising $100,000 to grant a travel wish to a courageous child battling a life-threatening medical condition in each province. The company's Wishes Across Canada initiative has already raised over $30,000 towards its $100,000 goal.
"We are honoured to have such a generous partner in TU Group whose employees, brokers and customers are so thoughtfully committed to supporting our magical wish-granting mission," said Jennifer Ritter, CEO, Make-A-Wish Canada. "We congratulate TU Group on their 50th anniversary and thank them for their significant support in making more life-affirming wishes come true."
The next fundraising initiative as part of the 50th anniversary campaign will see 30 TU Group employees challenge themselves in the grueling Tough Mudder competition this summer. With a fundraising target of $17,950, TU Group will be one step closer to its goal of granting more travel wishes like 16-year-old Ontarian, Jorie, acute promyelocytic leukemia, who wished to go to Hawaii to see turtles and float down a lazy river.
"At TU Group, we're incredibly excited to bring our Tough Mudder team together to fundraise for Wishes Across Canada," said Mike Starko, executive director, TU Group. "Our team's commitment and passion to help children like Jorie experience memorable travel wishes, makes all the mud, icy water and fire worth it!"
