The subchapters in Sarnia and Oxford County will be comprised of 5-10 volunteers who represent the organization through local activities supporting awareness, community engagement and fundraising within your designated geographic area.

Hand-in-hand with our donors, Children’s Health Foundation is strengthening and transforming paediatric health care in our region. We are proud to support the purchase of cutting-edge equipment, care-enhancing programs and ground-breaking research at Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre, TVCC and Children’s Health Research Institute.
