Ardy Mohajer was recently included in the Toronto Life article, “A Toronto Hospital is Proving That Sometimes Heroes Do Wear Capes” for his participation in Holland Bloorview’s annual fundraising campaign called Capes for Kids to help support kids and youth with disabilities.
Notes Toronto Life: “Each year, Holland Bloorview hosts Capes for Kids, a week-long campaign where thousands of people across Toronto — and even beyond — wear a cape to raise funds in support of kids and youth with disabilities. Since the campaign’s first year, fundraisers and donors have raised more than $3,400,000 toward the hospital’s programs, resources, research, care, and activities that help families when they need it most — and especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”
Through his role with Lawyers for Possibility, Ardy is among those who don a cape for one week in March. Lawyers for Possibility brings together lawyers from across the GTA to raise money for the hospital through the annual campaign.
Says Ardy: “When I first joined, I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about wearing it in public. But as soon as you see someone else wearing one and you give each other a look and nod of recognition, it encourages you a bit more,” he says. “It’s also a great conversation starter. Many people will ask why you’re wearing a cape and you get the opportunity to talk about Capes for Kids and Holland Bloorview.”
This year, Capes for Kids takes place March 7-13. Learn more here.
