The Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation was established in 1981 and is located at 633 Wellington Crescent. Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation is the fundraising arm of the Rehabilitation Centre for Children which sees over 22,000 visits from children and youth with disabilities from birth to age 21.
The four major fundraising events CRF hosts each year includes:
- Ride for Rehab, a two day pledge-driven snowmobile event for avid snowmobilers. The 2016 event will be held at Elkhorn Resort and Conference Centre February 18-21, 2016.
- A 10km walkathon called RBC Cruisin Down the Crescent which will be held next year Sunday, June 12, 2016.
- Starkids Golf Tournament held at Bel Acres Golf Course. Join us Thursday, July 7, 2016!
- A Night of Miracles gala at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg held Saturday, October 24, 2015.
CRF raised funds to purchase specialized equipment for children and youth living with disabilities and special needs such as ipads, adapted and modified bicycles, walkers and wheelchairs.We also fundraise for fund modified recreation programs coordinated by the Rehabilitation Centre for Children like Cooking Clubs, Saturday Night for Teens, Music Therapy and Art Therapy.
We are very grateful for the generous souls who create third party fundraising events on our behalf, such as John Wichers. John is a remarkable man! At the age of 78 he rode his bicycle from British Columbia to Winnipeg to raise funds for CRF this past June. John was able to raise over $23,000!
