Ability & Beyond Dinner poster​On June 11th, 2019, March of Dimes Canada will hold the 20th Annual Ability and Beyond Dinner. Presented by Bell, the evening will include live and silent auctions, and an inspiring presentation by journalist, author and stroke survivor, Mark McEwen

As a journalist for CBS, Mark McEwen interviewed Presidents and celebrities, and covered everything from the Olympics to the Cannes Film Festival. In 2005, he survived a stroke. Since then he's made a miraculous recovery and turned his experience into a story of hope and courage that he shares with audiences across the US and now Canada. McEwen has served as Ambassador for the American Heart Association, hosed the National Stroke Associations first annual RAISE awards, and spoke at two International Stroke Conferences. As an advocate for stroke recovery and prevention, we are thrilled to bring Mark McEwen to our Ability & Beyond Dinner.

We are also happy to announce that the evening will once again be host by the engaging Carolyn MacKenzie, Anchor of The Morning Show, on Global News. We want to give special thanks this year to the Dinner Committee Chair Scott Beckett, along with Dinner Committee member Michael Cole.
