15th Annual Splash & Dash

It is hard to believe that 2016 marks the 15th Anniversary of Splash & Dash - Sarah’s Fund. Back in 2001 when we joined forces with the Montreal Children’s Hospital’s Hematology/Oncology team to make a real difference in the lives of kids fighting cancer, little did we know what a difference we would make.



Splash and Dash was the first Flagship event of Sarah’s Fund. It is an inspirational day of competition bringing together families, corporations and most importantly, the young heroes of the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

On Saturday, November 5th, 2016, the 15th Annual Splash and Dash flagship event for Sarah’s Fund was held at the McGill University Sports Complex. This year we were excited to launch a new initiative thanks to the generosity of Jellyfish Kids and 'The Bell' Fund who are graciously supporting Sarah’s Comfort Kit which provides every newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patient a comfort kit on Sarah’s Floor. Sarah’s Comfort Kit started with a deep desire to help children battling cancer and other life threatening conditions have something to smile about and help make their stay on Sarah’s Floor a little bit more comfortable.

This year also marked the fifth year of our Heros and Celebrities race, a wonderful addition to the event that allows us to celebrate our young Heros from Sarah’s Floor. Over $275,000 was raised and we are grateful for the dedication and commitment of Event Co-Chair, Frances Szeto and the entire committee who oversees a team of over 250 dedicated volunteers for that one event.
There was also a special guest attending at this year’s Splash and Dash, Nicole (Nikki) Yanofsky who sang a Happy Birthday to the 15 years of Sarah’s Fund.
