Pure for Pediatrics; Be the Change for NEO Kids


We need your help Pure Country!

Did you know that every hour a child and their family leave the North to receive care elsewhere?

Children in the northeast face greater rates of disease and illness than the national average and there is a growing need for specialized children’s health care treatment in Northeastern Ontario.

We want to help!

Our goal is to raise $40, 000 for NEO Kids to purchase a new Giraffe OmniBed Carestation, so that the tiniest patients will be able to get the care they need right here in Sudbury.

The Giraffe OmniBed Carestation is designed with babies, and their families in mind, creating a controlled, protected microenvironment for peaceful, fast healing. Bringing premature babies one step closer to caregivers’ expertise, their parents’ embrace and to going home healthy.

If you would like to help us reach this goal then watch out for us at different local events around the year, donate, or host a fundraiser of your own!
