Carrie A. knows what it’s like to spend more time inside the walls of a hospital than out.
Her youngest daughter, Avery, who was born in 2011, spent most of her life — all 10 precious months of it — fighting to survive at the University of Michigan’s Children’s Hospital.
“No one ever anticipates needing to be at a hospital for months-on-end,” says Carrie, Group HR Manager in the Southwestern Ontario group. “That’s why it’s important for me to give back to organizations like the Ronald McDonald House – an option for my family and for many of our friends experiencing challenging times.”

That rapport would expand as the two teamed up off the field as part of the operating group’s Formal Mentoring Program.
