Corporate Teams Fundraise to Grant Wishes at Exile Island 2015

OTTAWA, June 24, 2015 /CNW/ - The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, National Capital Chapter, will be hosting one of Canada's most unique corporate challenges, Exile Island 2015, on Friday June 26th at Vincent Massey Park, Ottawa, ON. Exile Island is a "Survivor" inspired fundraiser that pits corporate "tribes" against each other, pairing them with a Wish child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, with the ultimate goal of same-day fundraising to be able to confirm the granting of their Wish child's most heartfelt wish. Business leaders and community members will be outsmarting, outplaying and out-pledging each other in order to grant 12 children their most heartfelt wish. Our Wish Children are in attendance during the Exile Island fundraiser, and receive the exciting news at the end of the challenge day that their wish will be granted.

When:  

Friday, June 26th, 2015, 1-5 p.m.
