Give a Shift

April 30 - May 2, 2021

You showed UHN’s healthcare heroes you Give a Shift,
and we couldn’t be more proud!

A big thank you to all participants for making our first Give a Shift event such an incredible success! More than 400 people took part in this unique virtual fundraising event, honouring healthcare heroes and raising over $250,000 in support of UHN.

From April 30 May 2, participants spent 12 hours – the length of a typical shift at UHN – completing tasks and challenges that offered a glimpse into the life of a healthcare worker while raising funds to support frontline workers.

A step goal, wearing personal protective equipment and doing acts of kindness were all part of the fun. Participants were also able to demonstrate their gratitude for UHN’s healthcare heroes through social media challenges like posting photos, videos and more.

Funds raised through Give a Shift will directly support frontline workers as they battle the third wave of COVID-19, providing them with meal vouchers and mental health support, among other things, so they can care for themselves while caring for others.

If you weren’t able to participate, it’s not too late to Give a Shift! Say thanks to our healthcare heroes with a donation today.

Funds raised so far: $263,907.02
