The Sikh Community held events in 2014 and 2017.
Our 2014 event was to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Komagata Maru incident. The local Sikh community rallied together to raise money for Markham Stouffville Hospital. The Sikh community event raised a total of $250,000 in a single night. In recognition of this contribution, a Patient Exam suite in the hospital’s Emergency Department has been dedicated in honour of The Sikh Community.
Our 2017 event was to celebrate the 350th Birthday day of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Our strong Sikh Community raised a total of $225,000 in one night to support the Markham Stouffville Hospital. The proceeds were used for MSH's Centre for Childbirth & Children Services to buy much-needed equipment such as baby incubators.
The local Sikh Community events have raised a total of $475,000.00 to help the Markham Stouffville Hospital to ensure continued excellence in patient care, for generations to come.
