Donor Spotlight | Week of April 16

Sauble Beach 8K

Inspired by their daughter, Abigail, and her journey at SickKids, the Fretz family decided to help raise funds in support of the hospital through the Sauble Beach 8K run. As a result of their efforts and the generosity of the community, they were able to raise an incredible $23,000 in 2017. All funds raised from the event are designated to the Blood Disorders Priorities Fund at SickKids.


We would like to celebrate and thank the organizers of the Sauble Beach 8K along with the Fretz Family for all of their hard work, support, and ongoing fundraising efforts for SickKids. This year’s event is set to be even bigger and better than the last. For more information on how to get involved, please visit:

Through its Give Back initiative, Uberflip is committed to raising more than $125,000 for SickKids and is well over halfway there with $34,000 donated already! From volunteering in the hospital to hosting an annual Startupong event to being a rallying member of the Tech4SickKids community, Uberflip wears its heart on its sleeve and is giving its all to make a difference.

Thanks, Uberflip, for smashing the limits of what SickKids can do!
