Since its creation in 1999, Kurling for Kids has been solely dedicated to supporting the two Mother & Child hospitals in Montreal equally, namely the CHU Sainte-Justine and Montreal Children's Hospital. Both institutions are highly renowned as well as regarded as world-class leaders in pediatric healthcare. Both have also set up foundations to leverage private funds to better achieve their mission either through the acquisition of medical equipment or the funding of special projects. Kurling for Kids has been enjoying a very solid partnership with both foundations for more than two decades and envisions no less than continue doing so for the foreseeable future.
In 2020, Kurling for Kids has extended its reach to include CHU Sherbrooke and all funds raised in events held in the Eastern Townships of Quebec will be used to purchase equipment for the pediatrics, maternity and neonatology departments at the Fleurimont Hospital of CIUSSS in Estrie – CHUS. Kurling for Kids is very pleased to be able to partner with the Fondation du CHUS with the goal of raising money to heal sick children in the region. This is a very important first step that Kurling for Kids is taking to become a province-wide, and ultimately a nation-wide, curling fundraiser on behalf of children’s hospitals, first across Quebec, and then Canada.
