Actor Ryan Reynolds joins the fight in the new SickKids VS: Join Us spot developed by Cossette for SickKids Foundation, kicking off the next wave of the award-winning #SickKidsVS campaign.

Ryan Reynolds came to Toronto of his own initiative and starred in this video because he wants to help build awareness for #SickKidsVS and children’s health. He was joined by approximately 300 SickKids staff members who volunteered their time to take part in the shoot.

The spot made its broadcast debut during the season premiere of Survivor on Global TV in Canada. It will also be promoted online and on social media. On Ryan Reynolds’ Instagram account (@VancityReynolds) alone, it topped 1M views in about 12 hours.

Later this Fall, SickKids Foundation will launch its fundraising campaign to build a new SickKids Hospital, the largest healthcare fundraising campaign in Canadian history. Because there are a lot of battles left to fight. Because it is going to take all of us. We are asking everyone to join us at fundthefight.ca.
