The Sinai Mural is complete! Created by local artist Jacquie Comrie, Colour Medicine is a seven-storey mural painted on the Murray Street parking structure across from Mount Sinai Hospital. In addition to beautifying the view for patients, staff and the community, the mural is an innovative fundraiser that lets art lovers build a digital version of the mural. Donations to the Sinai Mural will support Sinai Health’s programs that improve care for vulnerable communities.Learn more about the mural
Giving Back on
Every year, after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a day for giving back. That’s exactly what our community did, surpassing our $50,000 fundraising goal and raising over $74,000. Thanks to a matching gift of $50,000 from the Koffler Foundation, that impact will nearly double. Funds will support the Family Medicine Social Accountability and Health Equity Initiative, aimed at addressing inequities in health care and ensuring our care is inclusive, accessible and equitable.
Spin for Sinai
On October 2, 2022, a group of community members got spinning for a great cause! Spin for Sinai is an afternoon of spinning to raise funds to support research and improve care for people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) at Sinai Health. Participants put up big watts on the leaderboard that translated into major dollars: the event raised over $719,000 last year, with a total of $1.1 million raised since Stacey and Jonathan Gitlin launched the event in 2019.
Champions of Care
In its second year, Sinai Health Foundation’s Champions of Care saw a fantastic range of fundraising initiatives led by our community of supporters. For example, Michael and Natalie hosted a neighbourhood barbecue that raised over $4,500 in honour of their experience in the NICU, and the Catalyst Gym community came together to raise over $8,500 by hosting various challenges for its staff and members.

Hold’em for Life Charity Challenge
It was another record-breaking year for Hold’em for Life Charity Challenge, with more than 1,000 guests at back-to-back events raising over $4.6 million to support life-changing cancer research at Sinai Health, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and the University of Toronto. Since its inception, leaders across the asset management and real estate industries have raised an impressive $47 million for cancer research initiatives across the city.
The third year of Maliyah’s hike was a special one for event organizer Dylan, Maliyah’s father, and his wife Stephanie. With Dylan’s mother recently diagnosed with glioblastoma, a deadly form of brain cancer, he knew he wanted to dedicate the event to her. Participants hiked 85 km and raised over $21,000 to support the development of Sinai Health’s Neurocritical Care Unit. Here, we care for vulnerable premature babies – babies like Maliyah, who faced multiple challenges at birth and overcame them all, thanks to the love of her parents and advanced care from Sinai’s Newton Glassman Charitable Foundation NICU team.
Venture Sinai is a unique initiative encompassing groups of philanthropists who have collectively raised more than $4 million in support of the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute (LTRI). Venture Sinai members were once again able to feel the buzz of excitement from hearing directly from LTRI scientists at in-person dinners held throughout the year, where our best and brightest present their research ideas, provide guests with an overview of Sinai Health and the LTRI, and showcase the power of giving.Learn more about Venture Sinai
