For Children We Care Gala – BC Children’s Hospital Foundation (





Thank you for helping us map a brighter future for kids in BC, and across the globe.

As we reflect back on the incredible evening we shared together at the 25th Annual For Children We Care Gala, we continue to be inspired by the friendship and generosity of our guests, sponsors, the Committee and volunteers. Thanks to you, we raised more than $6 million to expand and accelerate clinical research that will break through current boundaries in pediatric orthopedic care around the world.

This milestone celebrated the unstoppable commitment and generosity of the entire gala community, which has continued to shine during the pandemic. It was truly a night to remember, and I am pleased to share this short video to remind us of the special evening we shared together.

Thank you for making the 25th Annual For Children We Care Gala a record-breaking and inspirational celebration.

For 25 years, the Chinese-Canadian community has risen up to support children’s health care in BC. This year, your record-breaking generosity will help expand a robust orthopedic research program around the world that will guide the optimal treatments for children still facing challenging orthopedic conditions.
