    TORONTO, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Join us today at The Hospital for Sick Children

announcement will impact the operating suites at SickKids, which is where the
most complex and serious surgical procedures take place.
    SickKids patients and members of the media are invited to have a sneak
peek at some of the finest Ferrari and Maserati's in Ontario and meet the
drivers. Guests will also have the opportunity to hear first-hand from a

motivation for joining the rally.
