3rd Annual Maliyah's Hike

OUR STORY

Maliyah Abigail Riches was born on July 8th, 2020. 

From minute one, the incredible team at Sinai Health's NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) leaped into action as Maliyah began her road of unfortunate complications. After two weeks of round-the-clock intensive care from the NICU team, Maliyah was healthy and robust enough to come home.

We hike to help fund the life changing work done by the nurses, doctors, and admin team at Mount Sinai Hospital. They saved our family and will continue to save others who visit Mount Sinai Hospital's NICU on the 17th floor. To date, we've raised over $25,000 to support priority programs for the NICU.

And we’re not done yet...

We are raising the bar for our 3rd annual event to hike 85 km with a goal to raise $20,000. This one's dedicated to Nana.

Funds raised will support a vision to redevelop a portion of the NICU to become a Neuro-Critical Care Unit (NCCU). With this Sinai Health experts will advance their ability to tailor therapies to preserve and promote early recovery of brain function for the most vulnerable infants.

Part of the Neuro-Critical Care Unit vision is to equip the NICU with point-of-care, cutting edge technology that would help medical experts prevent more illnesses and save more lives.
