Every year, BC Children’s Hospital treats over 96,000 kids — many of them battling debilitating diseases and chronic conditions.
Research is critical to overcoming these illnesses—and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation works to raise funds that help advance research studies that have the power to solve the biggest challenges in child health.
The discoveries made through the research initiatives at BC Children's are translated directly into improved care to benefit kids within the hospital, thus impacting the lives of children in B.C.
Now more than ever, the foundation needs the public’s support to bring new hope to children and families who need it most. Through the 2021 BC Children’s Hospital Choices Lottery, all proceeds raised will support innovative research initiatives at the hospital.
“During these uncertain times, the money raised through the Choices Lottery is more important than ever. These funds go toward groundbreaking research and discovering new treatments for sick and injured children across B.C. and the Yukon,” says Teri Nicholas, President and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “These discoveries are so critical in our quest to conquer childhood illnesses, which still impact too many children in our province. Thank you to everyone who supports the Choices Lottery; you are helping us transform pediatric health care.”
