Breaking down barriers in accessing trials.

With remarkable generosity, guests at the 2024 For Children We Care Gala, presented by Rogers and the Vancouver Canucks, came together on May 10 and raised $2 Million to fast-track the Clinical Trials Super Hub at BC Children’s Hospital.

This exceptional support will transform the lives of children and their families from across the province by opening the door to life-changing treatments that were previously out of reach. Along with providing access to existing therapies, it will also empower visionary medical minds to pursue novel ideas for tackling daunting health challenges—right here at BC Children’s.

Thank you to the For Children We Care gala committee, and their community for leading us to a future where every child has equitable and timely access to cutting-edge treatments. We look forward to sharing the incredible strides made possible by this dedicated community.

We would also like to express our profound gratitude to our generous sponsors and supporters, whose contributions were integral to the success of this year’s event. Thank you for your commitment to creating a future where every child thrives. 



“We have a bold vision where every child at BC Children’s has access to a clinical trial when it’s needed. Where families searching for hope are given the chance to enroll in experimental therapies. Where kids have access to the most innovative treatment options in the world, right here at BC Children’s. Where we no longer say to a family, ‘we have no other options.’ Through the establishment of the Clinical Trials Super Hub, this vision will be a reality.”

History of the Event

A kitchen table discussion between David Choi and Patrick and Irene Wang sparked a mission to transform children’s health. That mission and compelling vision came to fruition with the inaugural For Children We Care Gala at Victoria Chinese Restaurant, which raised over $190,000 for BC Children’s Hospital.

Since 1995, the For Children We Care community has rallied together with unwavering determination, raising over $35 million to propel care and research at BC Children’s Hospital. This year, you have the opportunity to build on this exceptional legacy and transform the futures of countless children and families in BC and beyond.
