On September 19th and 20th, it was all about celebrities, supercars and big, bright smiles rallying for kids with cancer at the 7th annual Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup series in events which stopped over in Toronto for 2 days.

Not only do celebrities drop in, smile and wave, but they also participate in a friendly “Amazing Race” scavenger hunt all day teaming up with the top fundraisers.

The charitable festivities support the SickKids foundation, raising over $12,000,000 for children’s cancer research, treatment and care.

With the help of these funds, SickKids Foundation is able to help children like 11-year-old Kathryn.

11 year old Kathryn Stewart has been undergoing years of bouts with cancer, chemotherapy and is currently undergoing testing to determine if the cancer has returned.
