Canadian automotive aftermarket fundraiser Shad’s R&R has topped the $3.6 million mark in total contributions to Muscular Dystrophy Canada in aid of continuing research.
The cumulative total following the 37th edition of the event was reached with this year’s raising of $125,000 through a combination of fundraising activities, chiefly the annual golf tournament.
The tournament was held for the first time at Station Creek Golf Club in Stouffville, Ont.
Attendees reported that the facility and the staff treated the Shad’s event very well.
Also earning lauds was keynote presenter Alex Howard, who spoke of his experiences with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and the importance of continuing research into a cure. The youngster received a standing ovation following his address.
