Walking For Zack Hamilton

In September of 2007, the Hamilton family – Heather, Paul and their son Ty – celebrated the birth of twin boys, Zack and Jayden.

Zack’s birth was the beginning of a challenging journey for him and his family, because he was born with a congenital heart defect known as Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Drainage (TAPVD). At two and a half weeks old, Zack underwent a procedure to repair his heart. Zack’s survival at that time was the first of many miracles in his life.

In March 2011, the Mini-Skool community shared the Hamilton family’s grief at the loss of Zack. On Thursday May 19, 2011, Mini-Skool will hold its annual Walkathon for the SickKids Foundation. This year, we will be walking to honour Zack and to support SickKids, the hospital that did so much for him.

As the Hamilton family can tell you, SickKids is a vital part of our community and it needs your support.

Mini-Skool has been the trusted daycare of choice for families in Ontario for almost 50 years. Health and Safety has always been the number one priority for our children. We are concerned about some of the allegations that were made concerning possible tampering with the wipes belonging to one of our children. Mini-Skool fully supports the police investigation into this matter. If somebody has done something to harm one of our children, Mini-Skool wants that individual or those individuals brought to justice. Mini-Skool is committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety and well-being of the children in our care.
