The Sunshine Foundation is the only national Canadian charity to provide individual dreams to children with severe physical disabilities (such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy) as well as life-threatening illnesses. In fact, 80% of Sunshine Kids are challenged by a severe physical disability. Sunshine is the legacy of a father’s love for his son. After losing his teenage son to muscular dystrophy, a London, Ontario police officer created The Sunshine Foundation of Canada to brighten the lives of other children and families by fulfilling their most cherished dreams - from meeting a sports hero to seeing a foreign country, or having a special gift like an adaptive bicycle. Sunshine was the first organization to bring DreamLifts to Canadian children. Sunshine’s one-day, whirlwind DreamLift adventures transport approximately 80 children by plane to an exciting destination such as a Disney theme park. Shane had the great privilege of going on a whale watching trip with his family and his best friend Trem in 2004. I have volunteered in an effort to give back since 2011.
