Hbc Run for Canada is a great way to celebrate being Canadian; and an outstanding opportunity for you to help raise funds for your local community in support of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Foundation and the Hbc Foundation.
   Your participation fee is a great start to helping us help your community. If you’d like to do more, you can make a donation

To make your fundraising efforts as successful as possible, set a goal for yourself. Remember, achievement of $250 or more in personal fundraising enters you into a draw for a chance to win a $1,000 Hbc gift card ( for more information click here). Set your sights high and use some of the following tips and activities to help you achieve those goals. The more funds we raise, the more the CHEO Foundation and the Hbc Foundation will be able to achieve in your community. Please note that tax receipts will be issued for donations in excess of $20.
