Kids Forever was founded by John Foy in 1998. We originally helped families from within the Fort McMurray area with sick and disabled children. We have however over the last 6 years become Alberta based,
working with The Stollery Children’s Hospital, The Glenrose Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Camp Health, Hope and Happiness as well as our own Fort McMurray Northern Lights Regional Hospital. Over our 14 years we have helped over 200 families with the financial hardship of medical costs due to equipment, travel, etc not covered by the Alberta Government.
Our funds are generated through charitable events and golf tournaments held in the Fort McMurray and Edmonton areas. Our main fundraiser is a silent/live auction and dinner dance held every fall at the Sawridge Hotel in Fort McMurray, Alberta. In the last 14 years we have raised over $ 5,000,000.00 thanks to the generosity of the community and our sponsors.
