World News – CA – Charles Juravinski celebrates his 91st birthday with $ 3 million donation to fight coronavirus


Hamilton businessman and philanthropist Charles Juravinski has decided to celebrate his 91st birthday by once again giving back to the local health system in a bid to fight the coronavirus pandemic

Juravinski, who celebrated his birthday on Sunday, and his wife Margaret, announced a $ 3 million donation to health care projects, including a saliva-based COVID-19 test for use in groups like the elderly in retirement homes

Research continues at McMaster University’s Department of Health Sciences and will support three projects:

The donation was made through the Juravinski Research Institute, a partnership between Hamilton Health Sciences, McMaster University and St Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton

“This year has been unprecedented in many ways,” Juravinski said “The dedication and commitment we have seen from the research community and clinical teams have motivated and inspired Margaret and I to do another donation When we gave our gift in the spring our goal was to inspire hope We would like this new gift to continue to inspire hope, collaboration and action Margaret and I really don’t need anything on our birthdays Instead of this, what would give us the most joy, is to see our donations making a difference right now, by supporting the brilliant and talented research community that resides in Hamilton. »

The new donation will fund important new health research projects through the Juravinski Research Institute, which was established with the couple’s transformative $ 100 million estate gift in May 2019

Last spring, the couple donated $ 3.3 million to help fight COVID-19 and fund brain health research

“We know Charles and Margaret want to empower others through their actions and build on the success of the phenomenal health research that they have already helped foster here in Hamilton,” said Dr. Julian Dobranowski of the Juravinski Research Institute Steering Committee « The impact of these investments will continue to benefit people around the world, for generations to come. We are very grateful for their confidence in our researchers, their faith in the work we all do and for their immense generosity « 

Starting Monday, November 2, Hamilton Health Sciences, McMaster University and St Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton invites the #HamOnt community to share on Twitter why they are grateful for the Juravinskis
