To date, over $158,000 has been raised for Tali’s Fund. The funds provided by Tali's Fund have helped lead to a large collaborative study with contributions from 37 institutions from within Canada and around the world. The team of researchers at the Arthur and Sonia Labatt Brain Tumour Research Centre at SickKids Hospital recently published a research paper in the journal The Lancet Oncology. It is the largest study published to date on ATRT (Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumour). Their data provides a crucial first framework for the development of clinical trials. Research is ongoing with a second publication already in the works. Funds continue to be needed so that this crucial work can continue.

A Successful Event!

We would like to thank Energy Karate for a wonderful and successful event!  $10,600 was raised for Tali's Fund from the Energy Karate Friendship Tournament!!  This is the 4th year that Energy Karate has held an event for Tali's Fund and we are so grateful for their support.  Many thanks to all the participants, volunteers, those who donated items for our raffle and bake sale, and all who attended the event.  If you would like to be on our mailing list so you can be informed of all Tali's Fund events, please send an email to

After attending the Friendship Tournament, Jayden and Justin Posen went home and decided to set up a lemonade stand.  They raised $55 for Tali's Fund!  Thanks so much to Jayden and Justin for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
