Music Heals 5, an evening in support of muscular dystrophy research, was held June 15 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Toronto. Among others, the 5th annual fundraiser in support of Kadey Schultz and her family saw hundreds of insurance industry supporters attend and enjoy the live music performed by The St. Royals. Kadey’s son, Emery, now nine, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) in 2012. DMD is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood. Funds raised from Music Heals benefit The Biggar Endowment for Muscular Dystrophy at the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto. This year’s event raised more than $62,000. Through the Music Heals events and everyone’s efforts, the Biggar Endowment has received over $300,000.
