Where does the money go?
100% of the proceeds from all fundraising activities at Animethon go directly to the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation through Extra Life Edmonton. The funding supports research and training, supporting mental health programs, and paying for uncompensated care. Let's do it for the kids! Through donor support, the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation continues to give the kids the best chance to live a long and healthy life.
