Zoe Saskin`s incredible fight for life just moments after her birth inspired Ski for the Children’s, now in its seventh year. Since its beginnings, almost $ 1 million has been raised for the Hospital!
Zoe’s story: the source of the event
A commitment that makes a big difference
In 2010, the Saskins and their organizing committee committed to completing a family room on the medical-surgical in-patient ward of the new Montreal Children’s Hospital on the Glen site.

The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation, McGill University, the Université de Montréal and the Fondation du Dr Julien will establish two chairs in social pediatrics in the community, to be based in the Montreal neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.

Over the course of the next 10 years, the most talented young researchers specialized in pediatrics of the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) will benefit from research scholarships called the Desjardins Scholarships in Child Health.

This financial assistance will provide successful candidates with a unique opportunity to work with leading researchers and achieve a critical step in advancing their education and scientific …

On Saturday and Sunday, patients and their families, staff members and their families, and members of the public followed self-guided tours and enjoyed a rare opportunity to access areas of the building that will be off-limits once the new Children’s opens its doors.
Among the highlights were the cafeteria with its impressive wall of windows, a new emergency department twice the size of the current one, the spectacular Children’s Atrium, state-of-the art operating suites and spacious single-patient rooms.
