http://www.timhortons.com/ca/en/childrens-foundation/donate-now.phpCelebrate Tim Hortons Camp Day on Wednesday, May 31!

Some kids don’t start with much. But on Tim Hortons Camp Day, every coffee you order helps send kids from low income families to a Tim Horton Camp, so they can see a world of possibility. On May 31st, 100% of coffee sales and proceeds from bracelet purchases will help brighten a kid’s future!

Camp Day will help send more than 20,00 campers to a Tim Horton Camp thanks to the generosity of Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners. Funds raised on Camp Day provide so much more than visits to camp. THCF programs are designed to help kids from low-income families think differently about themselves and their future opportunities.

Experience the world’s largest street tournament and sports festival Saturday, June 3 & Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the Rockcliffe Flying Club!

Each Play On! involves closing down up to 1.6km (1 mile) of street, parking lot, or (sometimes, when we are lucky…) airport runway, often in a downtown (but always in an exciting and popular) destination, in order to build and operate street hockey games on up to sixty separate street hockey rinks!   Those rinks are surrounded with vendors, games, and sponsor activations (that’s a word used to describe the fun stuff sponsors like to provide for you to do when you are not playing)!

CHEO’s Teddy Bears’ Picnic @ Rideau Hall Grounds
Jun 24 @ 08:00:00 AM – 02:00:00 PM
CHEO's Teddy Bears' Picnic @ Rideau Hall Grounds

It’s time to gather up the kids, put on your sunblock and head to the grounds of Rideau Hall for everyone’s favorite family day out – CHEO’s Teddy Bears’ Picnic!

Once again CHEO Bear and all his friends have put together an exciting day of games, rides, activities, music and more – and the best thing is, admission is FREE!

The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is one important way for CHEO to thank this amazing community for their continued support. It is a fun-filled day in which CHEO celebrates families and children and is jam-packed with activities for kids of all ages:

  • The day begins with a celebrity breakfast from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. where pancakes, sausages, juice and coffee are available for $5 per adult and $3 per child.  The food will be served up by local celebrities.
  • At 9 a.m. the popular B*A*S*H Tent (Bear Ambulatory Surgical Hospital) will open and volunteers from CHEO will make sure to fix any boo-boo that local stuffies have sustained. Children are invited to bring their teddy bears and other stuffed animals for their yearly check-up and visit to the dentist.
  • At 9:30 a.m., another local celebrity – CHEO Bear – will lead the parade of mascots to the delight of children big and small.
  • Carnival games presented by Giant Tiger, children’s rides, clowns, face painting and free tours of the Governor General’s official residence are also on the agenda, as is the popular Build a Buddy tent presented by Bell, where for a $20 donation children can create their very own teddy bear. All proceeds from the Build A Buddy tent go to CHEO.  Family entertainment is also offered on the main stage between 10 a.m. and noon. All festivities end at 2 p.m.
  • There will be an ATM on site.

No parking on site: Because there is no parking available on site, free parking and shuttles will be available at CHEO, 401 Smyth Rd. in lots C and D starting at 7 a.m. The last returning shuttle bus leaves the Rideau Hall grounds at 2:15 p.m.  There is also free parking at NRC, 100 Sussex Dr. which is just a short walk to the picnic.

Admission is free, as are most of the activities thanks to the generous support of our corporate Good Bears including our major sponsors; Bell, Giant Tiger, PCL Construction and The Canadian Forces Health Services.
