Cunningham said he enjoyed being able to carry on the relationship first started by Brett Kirk and Brad Seymour over 18 years ago.

“I was involved through Rhyce Shaw about three years ago and it is something I am very grateful for and enjoy being able to do,” Cunningham said.

“We are in a position to be able to inspire kids and to be able to do that on a yearly basis I feel grateful to be a part of it.”

“Redkite are an amazing foundation that for a tremendous amount of work to help the families and patients here at the hospital.” 

“To be able to give back is something that I treasure a lot.”
