The Cause

This year’s cause


SickKids has always led. It’s always been on the front lines in the fight for children’s health. But today, its biggest battle is against limits. The limits of an old building, the limits on generating new knowledge and translating it to treatment, the limits on delivering seamless health care to every child. Breakfast of Champions is proud to hold rank as a Catalyst Donor in the new SickKids fundraising campaign, SickKids VS Limits and is committed to investing in the future and bringing discovery to the bedside.


What SickKids is Doing Today:
  • 7 research program areas, from genetics & genome biology to mental health.
  • Helping to advance clinical care across SickKids, from oncology to allergy.
  • 248 principal investigators, 1,042 trainees from around the world.
What SickKids Needs to Do:

Shatter the limits on its ability to rapidly translate discoveries in the lab into treatments for children in the Hospital.

How SickKids Will Get There:
  • Investment in research leadership, clinical trials, and research support units, coupled with ongoing funding for the scientists already recruited, will sustain and accelerate groundbreaking discoveries.
  • Increased funding will speed the translation of these discoveries into treatment.

It’s only a breakthrough when it helps a patient. Join us, and unleash the full potential of SickKids.


It takes the dedication and passion of many to care for the more than 100,000 children who visit SickKids each year. The strength and support of countless doctors, nurses, volunteers and donors enables SickKids to continually push the frontiers of care, research and learning, and to make a profound difference in the lives of children who need their help.

Philanthropy has an enormous impact at SickKids. Donations fund, among other things:

  1. major equipment purchases and capital renovations, ensuring that the facilities remain leading edge;
  2. training programs for SickKids’ health professionals to keep them at the top of their fields;
  3. the infrastructure for the SickKids Research Institute, allowing their scientists to be at the forefront of their respective fields;
  4. national and global projects, helping to build capacity across the country and around the world to improve child health.
