Members of 400 (City Of Toronto) Tactical Helicopter Squadron will give Santa's elves a lift to Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children on Tuesday, Dec. 11. The flight is part of Operation Sick Kids HO HO HO.
A Griffon helicopter, nicknamed "Rudolph," will leave Canadian Forces Base Borden at 12:45 p.m. and travel to Toronto, piloted by Lieutenant-Colonel Doug Moodie, the squadron's commanding officer. It will land at the hospital helicopter pad with six of Santa's elves, along with a load of toys, books and donations.
Local businesses in Barrie, Borden and Alliston, as well as the military community provided all donations for this event. The elves will also read to the children in the hospital's reading room at 2 p.m.
A big HUA for members of 400 Tactical Helicopter Squadron!!
