ABOUT THE FUND
As there are many hidden costs associated with cancer, it is our goal that, in Ryan's memory, this foundation and golf tournament will assist families struggling with the financial burden of treatments, accommodations and the unseen myriad of expenses associated with cancer. Our goal is to utilize 100% of the funds raised through the tournament and donations towards assisting families in need. Our commitment is to operate the Fund with volunteers only, with little to no administration costs of any sort, to ensure that all funds raised will go directly to support families in need.
Thanks to the support of the attendees and sponsors at the 2016 and 2017 Ryan Saturno Memorial Golf Tournaments, we have raised over $220,000 to date. It is through your generosity over the past two years that we have been able to financially assist 31 families, adopt two rooms at the Ronald McDonald House in Hamilton, and help to fund a new Family Room at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener. Through the Ryan Saturno Patient Amenities Fund and our annual golf tournament, it is our hope that together, we can continue to assist young patients and their families in their cancer journey.
