Media Advisory - Mattamy Homes to Make Half-Million-Dollar Donation for Pain Management at SickKids

    OAKVILLE, ON, Nov. 9 /CNW/ - Unfortunately, pain is among the challenges
facing many of the young patients at The Hospital for Sick Children.
    On Nov. 14, Mattamy Homes President and CEO Peter Gilgan will present a
$500,000 cheque in support of Pain Management to SickKids Foundation.
    The funds were raised with generous support from Mattamy's employees,
business partners, families and friends through the third Mattamy Homes Tour
de Blue cycling ride from Vancouver to Toronto last summer.
    Funds raised by previous Tour de Blue cycling events included providing
support for the renovation of Marnie's Lounge - an area in the Hospital where
patients can play video games, watch TV, listen to CDs and relax in other ways
that make life more enjoyable.
    On Wednesday, members of Pain Management and a mom of two patients will
be among those speaking at the event.
    Media are welcome.
