CAIR for Kids

Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation

Who is CAIR for Kids?

Hello and welcome to our fundraising page! We are a bunch of scientists from the Child and Adolescent Imaging Research (CAIR) group located University of Calgary and the Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute.

About CAIR
The CAIR program at the Alberta Children's Hospital brings together a group of imaging scientists with the shared goals of understanding how the brain develops in children, and where it is vulnerable in developmental and psychiatric disorders. Founded in 2013 with the support of the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation (ACHF) and Research Institute (ACHRI), as well as the Department of Radiology and the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI).

The CAIR program is a hub of technical expertise in developmental neuroimaging, and thereby supports research initiatives across the University of Calgary through inter-disciplinary collaborations with the Departments of Psychiatry, Psychology, Kinesiology, Community Health Sciences and Education.

The goal of Child and Adolescent Imaging Research (CAIR) is to develop and implement a comprehensive pediatric imaging research program including key recruitments, state-of-the-art technology, space and staff with skills to analyze and translate imaging data into interventions that lead to measurable positive health outcomes for children and adolescents with neurodevelopmental and mental health disorders.

About the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation

As the official fundraising body for the Alberta Children's Hospital, all money raised by the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation is re-invested in the hospital and child health needs in this region. Through the generosity of our donors we are able to provide funding for family centred child health programs, specialized life-saving equipment and advanced pediatric research and education at the Alberta Children's Hospital.

The Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation is honoured to work with the dedicated team of caring professionals at our hospital and even prouder to be part of a community that shares in the vision of a healthier future for our children.

About RBC Race for the Kids
Charities need us more than ever and that is why we've signed up for the first-ever global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to raise much-needed funds for youth charities around the world.

This year’s global virtual event on October 17 and 18 will bring people together from all over the world to help children & families. Mental health issues are the single largest health problem facing young people in Canada today, with 70% of them starting in childhood. That’s why this year’s RBC Race for the Kids is supporting the new Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health right here in our community.

The Centre will help young people and their families better identify and manage mental health challenges early - before they escalate into crises that require hospitalization.

We're hoping you will support our fundraising efforts by making a donation! Together, we can Build the Centre, and Build Them Up! We will keep you updated on our fundraising progress, and if you're encouraged by our efforts, please feel free to register and join us!

Thank you from us and all the RBC Race for the Kids participants and charities!
