This wonderful, family event raised over $45,000 in support of Children's Health Foundation! It was a beautiful day with full sunshine and a cloudless sky. This year's event showcased aircrafts for the first time, which were a hit. The children's area bustled non-stop with happy, excited kids—there was a bouncy castle obstacle course, face painting, crafts, bubbles, and Tom Thumb peddle cars. The radio operated cars were another highlight, as was the musical instrument "petting zoo," where kids could try different musical instruments.
THANK YOU to GAIN, sponsors, spectators, and supporters of the event for making an incredible contribution in support of children with special needs in our community.
All for the kids
Funds raised will be invested in early intervention programs, which help babies and pre-schoolers with health challenges get a great beginning to life. Early intervention services include physiotherapy and occupational therapy, and speech therapy. When kids receive the help they need early on, they are more likely to thrive and surpass goals.
Thanks to donors in the community, kids like Asher and Nolan have benefitted from the Foundatin's support of early intervention programs, as has darling Abby. Seeing these kids thrive and smile shows how much your donations make a difference to Island kids. Thank you.

The Motor Gathering was held on August 17, 2014 at theViscount Aero Centre in Sidney BC. For many years, under many different names, this car show was held on the grounds of the Queen Alexandra Centre for Children's Health and hosted by Children's Health Foundation. This year, the show moved to a new location with its new hosts, the German Auto Import Network.
Save the date: August 16, 2015
