The Ottawa Senators Foundation believes that investing in programs and initiatives that promote both physical and mental wellness in our kids is a critical priority.  They are committed to ensuring that kids are given the opportunity to be active, engaged and to feel good about themselves.

CHEO Foundation

The sole purpose of the CHEO Foundation is to raise funds to help support the work of the  Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Donations help the hospital provide a wide variety of pediatric programs, research, state-of the art equipment, medical and nursing education, and assistance for families in crisis.

Angels of Hope

Angels of Hope is dedicated to raising funds to find and make available a non-toxic cure for brain cancer. Our efforts will help defeat GBM (Glioblastoma Multiforme), the most common and deadly brain tumor for both adults and children. The Angels of Hope through the United Way, are working to help brain cancer research right here in Ottawa. Together with the Ottawa Health Group the Angels of Hope have raised over $1 million for Brain Cancer Research at the CHEO Research Institute.

Canada Army Run, is about Canadians and the Canadian Armed Forces – Air Force, Army, and Navy – joining together in the spirit of camaraderie and community. It’s a chance for the troops to extend the military esprit de corps to Canadians and to thank them for their support. And, it’s an opportunity for Canadians to say thanks to the men and women who serve them in so many ways at home and abroad.
Soldier On was created in 2006 with the aim of supporting ill and injured military personnel with a permanent or chronic disability, both still serving and retired, and their families to attain an active and healthy lifestyle. It supports these personnel in increasing their independence, in developing new skills, in achieving goals and opening the door to other life opportunities. It furnishes an opportunity for them to socialize and explore common interests, and share learning experiences.
