Emerging Leaders Board


Our Emerging Leaders are a group of young professionals who are passionate about the work of CMRF with a fundraising and awareness raising mission. These inspired young people first gathered in 2014, and since then have organized numerous events to generate essential funds in support of Children’s Medical Research Foundation, Inc.


Funds raised by the Emerging Leaders Board were dedicated to the research of Dr. Sinead O’Donnell since 2015 and in 2018 the work of another Clinical Fellow will benefit. Sinead's work can be reviewed in more detail on page 40 of the National Children's Research Centre annual report at

The group targets another $150,000 in 2018 to continue developing this vital research work that is essential for sick kids. The events this year will center on another summer Gala in the middle of the year.
