BC Children’s Hospital Foundation
BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s vision is that every child is healthy and able to fulfill their hopes and dreams. BC Children’s is the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to the care of children. That means one million kids—including some of the sickest and most seriously injured—count on the hospital for specialized care they often can’t receive anywhere else. Funds raised from the Fall Classic will support the Rare Disease Foundation’s translational research program at BC Children’s, transforming the lives of those patients affected by rare and undiagnosed diseases.
