Ways to Support Kids

  • Jeans Day is an annual province-wide fundraiser that encourages everyone to buy a pin or button and wear denim on May 3 in support of BC Children’s Hospital.

    Buttons can be purchased for $5, and lapel pins for $20 at an official retailer – Save-On-Foods, PriceSmart Foods, Urban Fare, London Drugs, Thrifty Foods and Country Grocer on Vancouver Island. To participate, individuals, corporations and schools can also register to be a champion online at www.jeansday.ca.

  • The largest family fun run in Vancouver, RBC Race for the Kids is BC Children's Hospital Foundation's signature run. Since its inception in 1986 the event has raised over $13 million in support of childhood cancer research and treatment and, as of 2016, pediatric mental health initiatives.
