Wear and share to help kids in hospital

Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba celebrates #ChildrensHospitalsWeek and encourages support for HSC Children’s Hospital April 8-11, 2024

Winnipeg, Manitoba (April 8, 2024) – Show you care for kids in our community by joining Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, and children’s hospitals across North America, in celebrating #ChildrensHospitalWeek 2024 from April 8 to 11!

Anyone can get involved to show support for Manitoba’s only Children’s Hospital by participating in this awareness week. Let’s make anything possible for kids who need care.

In Manitoba, the following activities encourage support for the children’s hospital and pediatric health research:

Support will help kids like 2024 Champion Child, Janessa Dumas Colomb, who represents the 140,000 kids who need Manitoba’s children’s hospital each year. At age five, doctors found Janessa’s kidneys weren’t functioning properly and at age 12 she needed a transplant. Now Janessa is thriving, doing the things she loves like dancing and fishing. She will continue to work with specialists in Winnipeg as she grows. 

“Children’s Hospitals Week celebrates children’s hospitals and shines light on the importance of specialized child health care and research,” says Stefano Grande, President and CEO, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. “Every donation makes a difference in helping give better futures for kids and families in our community who rely on HSC Children’s Hospital.”

Please help #GiveBetterFutures to kids like Janessa and donate today at goodbear.ca.
