What is Ski for Kids?

Several years ago, a handful of community minded ski lovers got together to host a fun event that had meaning: a skiing event that raised money for the most vulnerable population in the community—young children and youth.

Ski for Kids helps our youth by supporting CHEO and the Children's Aid Society of Ottawa!

Come and join us for a day on the slopes for the 28th annual Ski for Kids day!


Making a difference, changing lives!

Here are some remarkable stories that showcase how supporting Ski for Kids can make a difference.


Supporting Mental Health Research 

Researchers and clinicians at CHEO are working to improve treatment and outcomes for patients with eating disorders. While much publicized, eating disorders are still misunderstood as a phase, or a natural part of growing up. In fact, severe cases of anorexia have mortality rates higher than any other mental illness.


Supporting Audiology - Helping Kids Hear

Pediatric audiologists know that early and consistent access to sound is not only crucial to a child's development of listening and spoken language skills but to brain development, language acquisition, as well as social and emotional health. For some children, a conventional hearing aid isn't possible, they need bone conduction hearing aids - BCHAs.

Children's Aid Foundation Of Ottawa

The Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa (CAFO) raises essential funds for children and youth who are in the care of and supported by the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa. CAFO inspires and empowers kids to reach their full potential by providing life-enrichment and educational opportunities that help break the cycle of abuse and neglect in our community.

Over 1,000 children, youth and their families are directly helped by CAFO each year in Ottawa. Our programs provide funding for basic necessities that are often taken for granted such as a post-secondary education (Dare to Dream Bursary Program), participation in after school sports activities (hockey, soccer, swimming), dance and music lessons, summer camps, and as well as the purchase of clothing, furniture, and school supplies.
