Welcome to George & Christy Chong Fundraising effort for the Stollery Children's Hospital
Thanks to the generosity of a donor, last July, I was fortunate to receive a life-changing kidney tranplant that has given me a second chance in life. With the ongoing recession in our province and financial restraints impacting every corner of our societies, please join my daughter(Christy) and I in raising funds for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation to help these sick children.
Why Stollery Children’s Hospital, you may ask?
It is the referral centre for all complex pediatric heart surgeries and transplants, the only major children organ transplantation centre here in Alberta, home to Canada's most extensive regional program for neonatal intensive and intermediate care, and provides some of the most advanced treatments for child-health issues in the country. It’s the only pediatric emergency in northern Alberta.
It's not just the children in Alberta who count on the Stollery. There are children from northern BC, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, plus Nunavut, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories that depend on the Stollery. Through donor support like you, the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation continues to give the sickest kids the best chance to live a long and healthy life.
Saturday, June 20th, 8:00 am all of the registered VIP children will first have the opportunity to take a short helicopter ride high in the sky over the city. The VIP kids will encounter breathtaking views of the surrounding area in one of the many Synergy aviation Helicopters. Once all the VIP kids have “Reached new Heights” and earned their rotors, they will return to the ground and rendezvous with their assigned custom & exotic car drivers/owners (I will be one of the many drivers).
As a group at 11:00 am the VIP children will be riding shotgun in the event cars and will now head out on a fantastic journey throughout the city of Edmonton. These VIP kids will be treated and feel like true VIP while immersed in the passenger seats of custom & exotics cruising the city streets in packs under a police escort to thunderous applause by the thousands of spectators cheering them on. A true VIP welcome!
This new route will past several historic landmarks and onto to the Legislative grounds at the Edmonton city core. Upon arriving at the Legislature grounds, the drivers along with their very special VIP passengers will meet up with their respective VIP families for an incredible catered lunch under the big top.
There will be live entertainment on the legislature grounds main stage such as dance groups, award-winning local singers, fencing demonstrations, live bands, and much, much more! There will also be a large number of activities for the VIP kids/families and the public to participate in such as climbing walls, 30 foot reverse bungees, sumo suits, hamster balls plus 30 other amazing rides and games to participate in.
Please help support this fantastic event and the Stollery Children's Hospital so they may continue to advance and persevere to be a world-renowned pediatric cardiology and organ transplant hospital.
