Every year CIBC Capital Markets traders and CIBC Wood Gundy investment advisors donate their fees and commissions to help kids access vital support programs and services that help them thrive. This year's CIBC Miracle Day brought together celebrities, athletes, musicians, singers, charities and CIBC team members – all with the goal of raising funds to improve the lives of children around the world. Longstanding supporters Scott McGillivray, Tessa Virtue, Pinball Clemons, Mira Sorvino, Simple Plan, Charles Oakley and Bruce Croxon, were among the special guests who brought their energy and enthusiasm to highlight the incredible and inspiring work of children's charities.
