We started with one man, a tragedy and are now one of Toronto’s fastest growing charities

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

“Team “I Will” wasn’t something planned. It simply began to take on a life of its own. Today it is one of Toronto’s fastest growing charities.”

 – Robert MacDonald, Founder

Team “I Will” is a community of people who have come together to break barriers. Whether it’s a mental or physical feat, team members will encourage and inspire each other to push past hinderance and overcome obstacles. Through these experiences Team “I Will” members have built meaningful, lasting friendships.

Not only does Team “I Will” support the surrounding community through inspiration, it also raises money for the Toronto Rehab Foundation, the largest rehabilitation hospital in the world to help those who need love and support through their recovery. The technology that has already been built is already working towards improving the rehabilitation process and success rates.
