Welcome to Funday Sunday 2019's page
   

We are making a difference - together!

Funday Sunday is an annual fundraising BBQ hosted by the Triconi family in Beaconsfield for our family and friends with 100% of proceeds going to a worthy cause.  Funday Sunday began in 2002 to benefit Pedal For Kids for the Montreal Children’s Hospital.  In 2008 we partnered with the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and began sponsoring wishes. For a family whose child is fighting a life-threatening illness, sometimes the power, hope and courage that a wish brings can make all the difference in the world. Wishes work wonders, and every gift matters!

 

FUNDAY SUNDAY 2019 is for Roxana, 15 years old, who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2017. She underwent a stem cell transplant when she relapsed in 2018.  Her long stays in the hospital made her think about her future a lot and she found her future vocation: Nursing!

Before her illness Roxana enjoyed being a competitive swimmer which she hopes to be able to return to soon, but only for pleasure and to help her regain strength. She is currently taking a hip-hop dance class to stay active.  Roxana’s wish is to go on a trip to Italy to visit Rome, Florence and especially Venice, which she has seen in the movies.
