With nine broken vertebrae, a dislocated spine, 11 broken ribs, a broken scapula, a punctured lung, a lacerated kidney, and no sensation below his waist, doctors gave Robert MacDonald a 5% chance of ever walking again. Two years later, he completed a half marathon and three years later he completed his first full marathon.
The Toronto Rahab Foundation helped give MacDonald a second chance and three years later, he set out to complete a marathon and give back. Soon a dynamic community had rallied around his mantra and hundreds would challenge themselves to do the same, joining MacDonald in crossing the finish line at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 2015. This is where Team “I Will” began.”
FAST FORWARD TO 2019 and we are well on our way to becoming Toronto’s fastest growing charity and accomplishing our fundraising goal of $500,000. Team “I Will’s” sole beneficiary is the Toronto Rehab Foundation
