Model Profile – Meet Colin Hennigar
Meet Colin Hennigar
Colin has been filling the big shoes of Director of Major Gifts at SickKids Foundation since February 2010.
Why Fashion Heals?
As the fundraising lead for the Garron Family Cancer Centre, Fashion Heals has been a champion and force in providing much-needed funds for innovation. These funds are used by physicians, nurses, researchers and other medical staff to pursue ideas where traditional means of funding are not yet available. The potential is tremendous in terms of the impact that the Innovation Grant for Cancer Care can achieve, both for advancing research and treating children at SickKids, across Canada and around the world.
