Cricket Canada is pleased to announce members of its men’s and women’s national teams will take part in McHappy Day (1045 Pape Avenue Toronto, ON) on Wednesday May 8th, 2013 in support of children’s programs at the Toronto East General Hospital.

McHappy Day caps off an exciting national effort of fundraising in support of Canadian children in need. 

This year, on May 8th, one dollar from the sale of every McMuffin sandwich, Happy Meal® and Big Mac® will be donated back to support children’s programs at the Toronto East General Hospital. 

Cricket Canada recognizes the importance of McHappy Day in supporting programs that are concerned with the needs of Canadian children and creates widespread community support and awareness of their goals.

National team members will assist McDonalds employees in taking orders, working the drive-thru window and in the kitchen helping to prepare food for customers.

Cricket Canada President Ravin Moorthy was happy to have the organization take part in the event. “Children are the life-line and vibrancy of Canadian communities and we are ecstatic at the enthusiasm of our national team members to get into the community for this event in support of the Toronto East General Hospital.” Moorthy said.  “We encourage cricketers across the country to visit McDonalds today and contribute toward helping children in need in their respective communities.”
