Cardiac Kids
Cardiac Kids is a volunteer group founded in 2000 to raise much-needed funds for children who are suffering from congenital heart disease. Every year, 8 out of 1000 children are born with congenital heart defects. Last year in Canada there were approximately 400,000 births, which means that in this country alone, approximately 3,200 children were born with some form of heart defect.

Cardiac Kids


All money raised directly benefits the children and staff of the cardiology ward at The Hospital for Sick Children, which is recognized as a world leader in caring for children with congenital heart disease, and has the largest Cardiac Program in Canada . To boost the morale of the children and their families, Cardiac Kids has hosted approximately 2,000 children and families at various sports and social events. Cardiac Kids provided the start up capital for Camp Oki , the first Canadian camp for children with pacemakers, and Cardiac Kids helped send Team SickKids to the World Transplant Games in 2007 and 2009. In addition, Cardiac Kids provides funding for educational seminars for patients and their families on issues related to congenital heart disease conditions. Cardiac Kids is a strong supporter of pediatric cardiology nursing education, with the aim of helping provide the best possible care for children who must undergo cardiac treatment. To that end, each year scholarships and conference funding are provided to Cardiac Program nurses to maintain their position at the leading edge of pediatric cardiology nursing.

Cardiac Kids is proud to support the Cardiac Program at The Hospital for Sick Children through initiatives that contribute to improving the quality of life for children and families living with congenital heart disease.
