In partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation of Canada, Remington is delighted to introduce “Flash”, the 2016 Collectible Bear designed by 7-year-old Noah – a courageous young boy living with Pompe disease. For over ten years, we’ve made these special bears available for purchase, helping the Starlight Children’s Foundation uplift the lives of seriously ill Canadian children and their families.
Noah was diagnosed with Pompe Disease in 2011 when he was only 2 years old. It is a rare genetic disorder that affects muscle growth and, as in Noah’s case, can cause the heart to become weakened.
Flash was inspired by Noah’s love for the colour orange, while the rainbow reflects his happy disposition despite the many challenges of living with a serious illness. The bow-tie also represents Noah, as he always likes to look dapper wherever he goes.
How does your donation help? Starlight Children’s Foundation partners with experts to improve the life and health of kids and families around the world.
For over 23 years, Starlight Children’s Foundation has been transforming the lives of Canadian children who live with serious illness and their families —from the emergency room to recovery.
While in-hospital, Starlight provides distraction, entertainment and relief from the stress and boredom of hospitalization.
When out-of-hospital, Starlight children benefit from their ‘Escapes’ and ‘Wishes’ programs— giving them an opportunity to leave the ‘sick’ behind, create special family memories and return home with a renewed sense of strength and hope.
Starlight is looking to expand to more hospitals and in more communities across Canada. The need is tremendous—and it is only with the generous support of our donors and partners that we will be able to reach and impact these special children, who so greatly benefit from our programs.
Last year, Remington matched every dollar you donated and with your help we raised over $40,000! This year, Bears can be purchased for $20.00 each. Help us surpass last year's total and provide much-needed services for sick kids!
To purchase Flash, please call 905.761.8200, e-mail Jodie Scoular at firstname.lastname@example.org, or send a donation to Remington Homes. Please make cheques payable to Starlight Children's Foundation.
