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.

Let’s talk about World Health Day & DNA Day and their impact on children’s health.
In April, we celebrate World Health Day and DNA Day. These two areas of research remind us of the role that healthcare service workers play to support and act on such ground-breaking research. Especially in these recent times while we’re experiencing the impact of COVID-19 in all areas of the country, their work has never been more recognized or top of mind to help not only children, but all Canadians.
Due to the demands of COVID-19, CHEO’s Emergency Department is offering virtual urgent care appointments in some cases by video. This is one more way they can help children, youth and caregivers physically distance while getting the care they need during this pandemic.
Let’s talk about #DNADay, which takes place on April 25th. At age one, Eli wasn’t hitting his growth milestones and was shortly referred to CHEO’s neurology team. They were able to diagnose Eli with Brain-Lung-Thyroid Syndrome, a genetic disease that requires an on-going treatment plan.
