Since 2007, BMO Capital Markets has been the presenting sponsor for the annual Toronto Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History, held in locations like the Toronto Zoo and Canada’s Wonderland, where a special BMO client event would also take place for families in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. This year, due to the unprecedented global situation in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cystic Fibrosis Canada made the decision to move the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History to a virtual format. Over 10,000 supporters, including volunteers, donors, partners and participants help support Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s mission; to end cystic fibrosis (CF). The funds raised at the walk are used to target world-class research and advocating for high-quality individualized CF care. As a proud supporter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, BMO Capital Markets matched donations of up to $35,000 for this great cause!

Lovisa McCallum, MD & Head of Balance Sheet Solutions was the 2nd top fundraiser for the Toronto walk. To date, Lovisa and her son Matthew have raised over $23,000 (pictured below). On Sunday, May 31, 2020, the virtual Walk took place with opening ceremonies via Zoom at 10am which included recognizing top fundraisers, BMO Capital Markets and a special CF guest speaker, Hilary Becker.
