Myers Family donate $1 Million to Butterfly Building Campaign

CHATHAM, ON – January 5, 2024 – The Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent was excited to announce that Cathy and Rob Myers Foundation have generously donated $1 million to the Butterfly Building Campaign. This donation will have a significant impact on the capital project to build a new 50,000 square foot facility for the children of Chatham-Kent.

“We’re a local company that believes in this community,” says Rob Myers, CEO, RM Sotheby’s. “If we can help reduce the waiting list for kids needing specialized therapies and services, then we will do it. This new facility will do amazing work and the extra space and facilities are long-needed. I hope we all can get behind finishing this project in 2024.”

“Every day, the need grows for this new, expanded and modernized CTC facility as our waiting lists get longer,” says Mike Genge, President, Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent. “The Myers family is aware of this need and have strongly supported our efforts in the past. This is another significant gesture that shows how much they want to help our kids with special needs.”

“What a great way to end 2023!” says Kevin Owen, Chair, CTC Foundation. “We are making great strides and are about to ask the community to help us over the finish line. The Myers Family have really given us the boost we need to get this project done.”

The new Children’s Treatment Centre will feature a range of essential amenities, including a dedicated gym, therapy rooms, and an updated pool that will be accessible to both clients and the wider community. The increased office space will enhance the working environment for staff and provide improved charting capabilities. The Centre will also be fully compliant with Ontario’s accessibility standards, ensuring that it is fully inclusive and accessible to all.
