The money raised from the event and auction will be used to provide essential care to children in need. Rev It Up proceeds will go to two vital areas of the hospital: cardiology and brain tumours in children. SickKids' cardiology division handles 20% of new paediatric cases in Canada and is a crucial part of the hospital and the welfare of the children it cares for.
