Our Cause

Brain and Mental Health issues are the most important health issues for children and youth.

Our target areas, Depression and Brain Injuries, are among the most prevalent in children and youth, and present the highest economic burden at an individual and societal level.

All donations made to participants of the student challenge are directed to the SickKids Foundation. The funding supports cutting-edge research and services at the SickKids Centre for Brain & Mental Health. We’ll keep in touch with participants and donors throughout the year to show them the impact of their contributions.
