Wonderland Tea Party

The Wonderland Tea Party event will raise money to support  urgently needed mental health inpatient beds and treatment for children under the age of 12. We know that early intervention can help change future outcomes and lead to a healthier adolescence and adulthood – and we know now that dedicated beds for younger children are part of the solution.

Currently, CHEO has 19 youth mental health patient beds and an additional 6 beds dedicated to an eating disorder program. Supporting children under 12 who are experiencing mental health symptoms requires additional and specific rooms. We welcome you to join our fundraiser for CHEO mental health patients. Buy tickets or donate now.

Ski for Kids

What is Ski for Kids?

Several years ago, a handful of community minded ski lovers got together to host a fun event that had meaning: a skiing event that raised money for the most vulnerable population in the community—young children and youth.

A portion of Ski for Kids’ proceeds will support CHEO’s youth!

Come and join us for a day on the slopes for the 28th annual Ski for Kids day!
