Chorney Sidhu Injury Lawyers of Brampton Supports Local Charity Many Hands Doing Good

Savannah Chorney of Chorney Sidhu Injury Lawyers in Brampton, ON,  will be running the Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 15, 2023, supporting the charity Many Hands Doing Good. This is Savannah’s first marathon. She has been tirelessly training in the hopes of bringing awareness to the devastating consequences of impaired driving. Impaired driving is a leading cause of death in Canada. In 2019, impaired driving caused the deaths of 155 individuals in Canada, making it the country’s primary criminal cause of death [1]. This equates to one fatality every other day.

Approximately eight years ago, a tragic incident occurred that claimed the lives of three precious children, Daniel (aged 9), Harrison (aged 5), and Milly (aged 2), as well as their grandfather, Gary. This unfortunate event was caused by a drunk driver on a Sunday morning. Sadly, Edward Lake, the children’s father, was also discovered deceased at his Brampton residence the day following Father’s Day, having taken his own life.

To address this heart-wrenching reality, there is a funding initiative in place. Each funding round costs approximately $750, and Savannah’s objective is to raise enough funds to cover a minimum of four rounds. Your support would be greatly appreciated in helping advance this important cause and provide increased access to treatment for those in need. Savannah, a personal injury lawyer in Brampton, is committed to advocating for the rights of victims. She honours the memories of Milly, Harrison Daniel, Gary, and Edward, whose spirits inspire her on every kilometre of her journey.

Many Hands, Doing Good is a registered charity based in Nepean, Ontario. They are dedicated to nurturing and inspiring children and youth who want to pursue music, dance, arts, and broadcasting. They offer a variety of programs and workshops, as well as scholarships and bursaries. Many Hands, Doing Good is committed to making the arts accessible to all, regardless of financial means.
