Just for Kids Foundation, dedicated to supporting the Montreal Children’s Hospital
Founded in 1987 by a group of devoted volunteers, Just for Kids (JFK) Foundation’s mission is to purchase life-saving medical equipment and support special projects at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. The organization just celebrated their thirtieth year of loyal support and raised over $11 million for the Hospital. Through the years these accomplishments have impacted the lives of countless young patients who have benefited from better care thanks to the JFK Foundation’s support.
“The JFK Foundation addresses a very concrete need. They provide state-of-the-art equipment that the Hospital wouldn’t be able to acquire otherwise. The result is that we have the tools to immediately offer better and faster diagnosis, and less invasive treatment for sick kids,” explains Dr. Sam Daniel, Director of ENT, one of the many departments to receive funding from the JFK Foundation.
The impact of JFK’s contribution can be felt by staff and patients all over the Hospital, from the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units, to the Dentistry Clinic, to Ambulatory Services that reach patients in their homes.
Among JFK Foundation’s strengths has been, without a doubt its events, which continue to grow annually. These include JFK Glee High School Showdown, the ever-popular Dancing with the Stars, the JFK Golf Tournament and Cycling Tour, and JFK Stroll for Kids.
