Pedal for Kids
Pedal for Kids is one of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation’s most important fundraising activities. It’s also one of the most exciting! Imagine a 30-seat Mighty Bike powered by proud participants making its way through the city’s downtown streets to rousing music!
A little story
In 1992, Sylvie Lalumière and Michael Conway started Pedal for Kids in memory of their daughter Meagan who had been treated at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Twenty-eight years later, their initiative is going strong, helping the hospital in its mission to provide cutting-edge care for sick children and their families.
The funds collected will be directed to the Healthy Kids Fund, where they are used for the hospital's most urgent needs. Most notably, the fudns are used for purchasing medical and surgical equipment, as well as financing innovative projects.
By supporting the Healthy Kids Fund, you are giving the hospital the necessary resources and tools when they are most needed. Your donation could be directed to:
- The acquisition of life-saving medical equipment.
- Financing important research on pediatric diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
- Training the next generation of doctors and medical specialists.
- Helping families with financial difficulty get the medical attention that their sick child needs.
- Other hospital priorities.
Your contribution is essential to maintaining the status of world-class pediatric care that the Montreal Children's Hospital has become known for. When you support our most urgent needs, you offer the best possible care to countless sick kids and their families.
Pedal for Kids is much more than a fundraising event. It’s a turnkey team-building activity for your company in the heart of Montreal.
