This year, 30% of the OSBRC Prize Pool will be donated to the SickKids Foundation in Toronto on behalf of everyone participating. 

Since 1875, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) has provided children and their families with world-class care, support and research to improve the health and well-being of children living in Ontario and around the world. 

There are over 13,000 staff, students, trainees and volunteers at SickKids, and more than 400,000 patients and their families come through the SickKids doors every year. As Canada’s most research-intensive children’s hospital, SickKids conducts ground-breaking studies with global implications.

A hospital and research facility this size requires funding as well as philanthropic support. Donations to SickKids Foundation support the SickKids VS Limits Campaign, which is the largest fundraising campaign in Canadian health-care history. So far, the campaign has raised more than 75% of its $1.3 billion goal!

The money raised will be used to build a state-of-the-art hospital and patient support centre

As much as the OSBRC is a Challenge where schools compete against one another for a chance to win prizes, always remember that it’s much more than that. There’s no doubt that recycling is good for the environment and your community, but as is the case here, recycling can also be a great way to support charities and causes that are important to all of us. So, as much as it is a competition, we’re also working together to support something awesome!
