Children’s Hospital Foundation cancels events due to COVID-19

Spring Book Market and Annual Picnic

The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba values the health of our whole community during the COVID-19 virus and has made decisions to cancel some events to reduce social gatherings.

Current event cancellations are:

  • Children’s Hospital Book Market – April
  • Teddy Bears’ Picnic – May

The Book Market also asks that no books be dropped off at fire stations or other drop off locations for Book Market at this time. Volunteers are following provincial health recommendations to stay home and will not be available to unload books. The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba values the support and dedication of our community at these events over the years and hopes to see everyone back at them in the future.

Your continued support of sick and injured children is important during this time. Please donate at goodbear.ca.
