Every kid deserves to have a childhood.
It’s hard to be a kid when pain and medical treatments are part of daily life and home is a hospital bed. Let’s do what’s right for kids. Let’s give every sick child their childhood back.
Hospitals are where kids are fighting their toughest battles every day. By supporting 13 of Canada’s children’s hospitals, we’re showing kids that we’re in it with them.
Passionate. Bold. Loud. Our partners are corporations and organizations who aren’t afraid to stand up and make a statement for kids’ health.
Get ready to play. Take to the dancefloor. Make a miracle happen. Our Signature Programs offer inspiring ways to make an impact on your local community and show kids we’re all here for them.
We’re here for the kids because they
need all of us.
Our mission is simple. We’re here to stand up for sick children.
Our Canadian children’s hospitals work together to find better ways to give kids more of their childhood back. How? By shortening their stays through research that improves treatments and finds cures, developing technologies that bring the latest knowledge, and creating care facilities designed for kids and their families first.
We’re here to believe that it’s possible to end childhood illness and disease. And we’re here to help make change come sooner.
For the kids, for healthcare, for Canada.
By helping to raise funds for 13 of Canada’s children’s hospitals, we’re the largest non-government funder of child health in Canada. But we haven’t done it alone. We work with partners, donors and people like you.
With your help, epic change is possible
We’re making progress. Change is happening. And you can help accelerate it.

Happy Family Day and Heart Month!
On Feb 15th, we’re hoping you get some quality family time. Our wonderful partner Sobeys is mindful of how mental health has affected kids over COVID and wants to remind kids that they have a Family of Support. Check out our partnership below.
Our champions like Sydnee and Blayke have cardiovascular-related conditions. Let’s take February as a reminder that heart complications, including strokes, affect kids too.
February 1 – 7 is Eating Disorders Awareness Week. There is a pressing need to support children and teens with eating disorders and other forms of mental health issues. According to Dr. Holly Agostino, Program Director of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Eating Disorders Clinic, “since the start of the pandemic, new diagnoses of anorexia nervosa have doubled, as teens present with extreme food restriction, weight loss, and an intense fear of gaining weight.”
Two years ago, Sydnee was diagnosed with a serious heart condition and underwent surgery in Edmonton. While the operation to correct her heart was successful, when Sydnee woke up, she couldn’t speak, read or even recognize letters of the alphabet.
