In 1987, a small group of concerned parents saw the need to fundraise for the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Upon visiting the hospital with their children they realized that key equipment was lacking to best diagnose and treat their family’s medical needs.
This group of parents soon blossomed into a dedicated group of volunteers who were continuously looking for new and innovative ways to raise funds for a very important cause. As such, the Just for Kids Foundation was born, with the distinct mission of raising funds to purchase high-priority medical equipment for the MCH. This equipment is used to diagnose and treat young patients, facilitating less invasive and often life-saving procedures.
With imagination, dedication and big hearts, these volunteers created Montreal-based fundraising events. Both large and small, these events have cultivated a very special group of volunteers who continuously challenge themselves to inspire, engage and give back. Not only has JFK created a local community among its members, but it also has impacted the community at large by helping children and their families throughout Montreal, as well as touching the lives of so many event participants, guests and corporate sponsors.
