Join Team Project Sunshine and help spread sunshine to children and families facing medical challenges!

Register, set your fundraising and fitness goals, and start spreading the word about the important work Project Sunshine volunteers do

With your help, our volunteers bring the healing power of play to children and families facing the stress and anxiety of hospitalization. No matter what the injury, illness or condition, being hospitalized as a child can not only be stressful but also very scary. Strangers asking questions, mysterious machinery, odd sights and sounds, needles, pills, and medicines – not to mention concerned friends, relatives, and parents – can all be very overwhelming for young patients.

Project Sunshine Canada volunteers bring sunny friendly smiles, familiar activities like colouring, arts and crafts, readings, stories, and special events to make the medical experience less overwhelming and as stress-free as possible! We also help parents and caregivers destress, unwind and feel human again through massage therapy, comfort care kits, peer support opportunities and crafts.

The money raised this year by our runners will support our Sending Sunshine program, sending one time use activity kits and surgi dolls to pediatric patients across Canada.  Our in-hospital programs and newly launched TelePlay program connect our highly trained volunteers with pediatric patients with games and activities remotely.  To learn more about our programs please visit our website at
