Conquer COVID-19 is a grassroots organization comprised of physicians, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and other volunteers who are working together to ensure frontline workers responsible for the health and wellbeing of Canadians have access to masks, gloves, and other supplies that are essential in treating patients and minimizing the spread of the virus.
The campaign is heavily supported by Olympic hockey gold medalist Hayley Wickenheiser, who also happens to be a medical student. Wickenheiser teamed up with the Conquer COVID-19 after seeing a need from Toronto front line workers for PPE. Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds has since thrown his support behind the group by amplifying their social media efforts with personalized videos, signatures and movie memorabilia … and modelling a Conquer COVID-19 t-shirt.
Every little bit helps, so let’s show Canada just how much Surrey cares!
