Sadly, due to the health risks posed by COVID-19 and in accordance with the City of Ottawa’s ban on public gatherings, the CHEO Foundation has cancelled the Teddy Bears’ Picnic on the grounds of Rideau Hall planned for June 20, 2020. We thank you for all you do for the kids at CHEO all year and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s picnic.
Thanks to supporters, sponsors and CHEO champions throughout the region, there’s always something new happening in the community to benefit CHEO patients.
Canadians can help their charities and communities by simply donating or buying gently used items that are lying around in their basements, garages or storage units. Using the GiveShop app is easy and free to users, with proceeds from all sales flowing directly to CHEO.
Consider supporting CHEO, if you can.
Your donations are more important than ever to ensure we can support the needs of children, youth and families in our community.
At the very heart of all the work done at CHEO, Roger Neilson House and the CHEO Research Institute are the children and youth we care for. Each patient has a unique story yet they all share one thing in common: they deserve world class care to help them thrive. Here are some patients whose families have agreed to share their CHEO experiences with you.
