Ottawa Ontario — The 2014 CHEO Telethon on CTV raised over $7 million dollars for the Children’s Hospital, and local singer Kevin Rivette got to be a part of that.
How do you define lucky? For Kevin Rivette it is being able to give back to an organization that helped his family.
“My baby girl is now 16, the CHEO family helped her in her medical challenges and still does today”.
It was a humbling experience for Mr. Rivette, to see young children there who needed CHEO’s services, watching him perform at the CTV studio.
“As I walk on set, I looked at the eyes of the young kids who were sitting in front of me! One family holding their young one and realizing for me to be up on this stage singing for them, how truly lucky I really am!”
Proceeds from the telethon will help CHEO with renovations and buying new equipment.
