Welcome to our Virtual Lemonade Stand!

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the Shriners Hospitals for Children — Canada staff made the difficult decision to postpone all of its 2020 fundraising flagship events in order to protect the health and well-being of our patients, their families and the community at large.

The news of this decision, however, saddened our two young Patient Ambassadors, Kaleb and Alab, and they decided to generate a "buzz" by creating a virtual lemonade stand. Last year, these two exceptional patients ran the lemonade stands at the 9th Canada Shriners Hospital Invitational and raised an incredible $25,000! Even though the 10th anniversary of our annual golf tournament has been postponed to August 2021, Kaleb and Alab's goal is to break their 2019 record this summer.

"Every year, our hospital treats thousands of children, many of whom are battling rare illnesses. We both have osteogenesis imperfecta, which means that our bones are very fragile and break easily. To date, we have broken more bones than we can count, but thanks to the amazing team at Shriners [Hospitals], we are getting stronger and stronger!" explained Kaleb and Alab.

Doctors and researchers at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Canada treat complex paediatric orthopaedic conditions including osteogenesis imperfecta, arthrogryposis and early onset scoliosis – to name a few. These health professionals are continually developing new treatments that help children reach their full potential.
