Give a Shift

April 30 - May 2, 2021

Are you grateful for UHN’s healthcare heroes? Show them you Give a Shift!

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic tested the limits of our healthcare system like nothing we have seen before. TeamUHN rose to the challenge - facing this deadly virus head on - both on the frontlines and in the lab, saving lives and discovering solutions.

A year later, our healthcare heroes are still working harder than ever. While they may be our heroes, they are human beings deserving of our support and appreciation. So, let’s honour them by coming together to demonstrate our gratitude with this first-of-its-kind fundraising event.

Gather a team or participate as an individual, then come April 30 to May 2, spend 12 cumulative hours showing TeamUHN you Give a Shift! A step challenge, hand-washing requirements and wearing personal protective equipment are just some of the creative challenges we will provide to help keep you going throughout your shift.

This fundraising event is a fun and exciting way to make an impact on research, education and the enhancement of patient care at Toronto General and Toronto Western Hospitals and Toronto Rehabilitation Institute. But most importantly, this is a way for you to say thank you to our healthcare heroes while they strive to build a healthier world.
