Project Sunshine

Join Team Project Sunshine and help spread sunshine to children and families facing medical challenges!

Register, set your fundraising and fitness goals, and start spreading the word about the important work Project Sunshine volunteers do…

With your help, our volunteers bring sunshine to a cloudy day for children and families facing the stress and anxiety of hospitalization. No matter what the injury, illness or condition, being hospitalized as a child can not only be stressful but also very scary. Strangers asking questions, mysterious machinery, odd sights and sounds, needles, pills, and medicines – not to mention concerned friends, relatives and parents – can all be very overwhelming for young patients.

Project Sunshine Canada volunteers bring sunny friendly smiles, familiar activities like colouring, arts and crafts, readings, stories and special events to make the medical experience less overwhelming and as stress-free as possible! We also help parents and caregivers destress, unwind and feel human again through massage therapy, comfort care kits, peer support opportunities and crafts.

Where will the money you raise go?

Each year Project Sunshine Canada has an annual programming budget of just under $200,000. This number will grow as we expand our programs across the country, reaching more and more children and families.

The money raised this year by our runners will help pay for purchase of books, arts and craft supplies, fund special events for the whole family such as Mother’s Day, pay for shipping of our Sending Sunshine boxes across Canada.
