We fundraise exclusively for Niagara Health and bring people across the region together for a single purpose – to help our local hospitals and their healthcare teams deliver the best possible healthcare, right here in Niagara.
It is our vision that we become the charity of choice that inspires our communities to invest in extraordinary healthcare for the people of Niagara.

“The people who work at the Walker Family Cancer Centre and supported me through my chemotherapy are just wonderful,” said Tom, whose body is showing no more signs of cancer today. “The staff there are seeing people at the worst possible time and they handle it so well and that helps. It helped me get through a devastating time.”
We acknowledge the land on which we work is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today.
This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Agreement.
Today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
