Royal Bank Supports Important Initiative



Royal Bank of Canada Foundation is to proud partner with one of Special Olympics Ontario’s newest initiatives – the High 5 Program.  A club designed specifically for Special Olympics athletes to share and tell stories, showcase events that they have attended.  Athletes have the ability to have their voice heard and influence other athletes to join Special Olympics, along with making new friends and becoming mentors for other athletes.

Our sincere appreciation and gratitude to RBC Foundation for their generosity and continued support.  Thank you to the RBC Team who visited Special Olympics today to present a cheque in the amount of $25,000.  Thanks also to Special Olympics athlete, Deeshana Nana and her family, for attending the presentation.  Deeshana is an enthusiastic ambassador for the Special Olympics movement and will be cheering on fellow athletes and friends as they participate in the up-coming Provincial Summer Games in York Region.
