On Sunday, March 26, 2023, more than 200 Hospital staff and 24 corporate teams completed the 129th edition of the iconic Around the Bay Road Race. Together, they helped our Foundation raise more than $360,000 for the following two vital projects at St. Joe’s:
- Giving babies and their families the very best start possible by expanding St. Joe’s Special Care Nursery and renovating 11 labour and delivery rooms in the Hospital’s birthing unit.
- Bringing the latest breast diagnostic imaging equipment to St. Joe’s so that patients facing a breast cancer diagnosis can get the definitive answers they need, sooner.
Thanks to all who participated in the race or made a donation to an individual or team! A special thanks goes out to Nick Carnicelli and Team Carriage Gate Homes, which raised more than $109,000 in near-record time. We are also grateful to Team LiUNA Lending a Hand, which reached a fundraising milestone this year – raising more than $1 million for St. Joe’s through their Bay Race participation over the past decade. This year alone, the team raised more than $137,000.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back next year when the Around the Bay Race marks 130 years and St. Joe’s celebrates its 20th year as the race’s official charity partner.
