Local Impact

In 2015, more than 2,760 Vancouver Island children were treated at BC Children’s Hospital – that’s about seven local kids each day.

All funds raised through Family Fun Day and the 1K Fun Run/Walk for the Kids will support the Excellence in Child Health Fund, which supports important programs and services provided by BC Children’s Hospital, its research institute and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. Your contributions will support areas of greatest need in each of these facilities, including specialized research into childhood diseases, the purchase of and/or upgrading to state-of-the-art medical equipment, and education programs for caregivers and families.
