Race fans, Honda Canada Foundation (HCF) and the Ontario Honda Dealers Association (OHDA) came together to raise more than $100,000 for Make-A-Wish Canada during the 2023 Honda Indy Toronto.

The cumulative total raised from 12 years of event fundraising has now surpassed $1-million. Proceeds support wish granting for children living with critical illnesses. In lieu of paid admission on Fan Friday, thanks to the OHDA, attendees were encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to Make-A-Wish upon entering the grounds and all donations were double-matched by HCF.

“Thank you to the countless racing fans for donating to Make-A-Wish Canada and thank you to all the volunteers and associates who supported the fundraising efforts at Honda Indy Toronto,” said Tony Facciolo, Chair of Honda Canada Foundation. “Honda is a long-time supporter of Make-A-Wish Canada and I am proud that this year, Honda Canada Foundation has double-matched donations for a wonderful cause that brings joy to the lives of children and families affected by critical illness across the country.”

“Everyone at Make-A-Wish is grateful for the exceptional support from Indy race fans, Honda Canada Foundation and Ontario Honda Dealers Association who have generously donated over $1 million over the last 12 years” said Meaghan Stovel McKnight, CEO of Make-A-Wish Canada.  “We extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who supported Make-A-Wish this year through the Honda Indy so that we may bring strength and joy into the lives of children facing critical illness.”
