Generations challenge - Fondation du CHUM

Push your limits for the CHUM!

This summer, we’re pushing our limits for the CHUM in Montréal, Quebec, the Laurentian Mountains, Gaspésie and beyond! The Generations Challenge will flood Québec with a huge wave of support for hospitals.

No need to run a marathon to show your support for your hospital. Challenge yourself or your team whatever way suits you. Be creative! Sports, wellness, cooking, family… the possibilities are endless.

Are you part of the CHUM community? Teams of four or more CHUM or CRCHUM employees can donate 50% of the money they raise directly to the fund of their choice. The other 50% will go to the general fund for the hospital’s urgent needs.

Short on inspiration? Want some ideas
for ways to challenge yourself?

Every idea is a good idea! It can be as simple as committing to reading a book a week, doing yoga every morning, organizing a waste collection drive… Every goal will make a difference!

You too can join the CHUM Foundation team!

Join the Foundation as we challenge ourselves to:

Walk 25 kilometres in three days in honour of our 25th anniversary!

How does my joining make a difference?

The Generations Challenge is open to everyone of all ages, whether you’re grateful for the CHUM’s quality of care or simply want to help build the future of medicine! Invite your friends and family to support you by making a donation on your fundraising page. There are no small donations and no small challenges!

When you join this Quebec-wide challenge, the donations you collect from your fundraising will help the CHUM and its research center teams innovate and push the boundaries of medicine to benefit all patients and their families.
