The Shine Foundation changes the lives of children and youth living with severe physical disabilities, across Canada.
Our Shine program focuses on the unique needs and aspirations of each young person we serve. These personalized experiences are customized by the child or youth and brought to life by Shine’s dedicated program team. From meeting a hero, to adapted sports equipment, we encourage them to shine bright!
Shine experiences help children and youth living with severe physical disabilities imagine new possibilities, inspire them to reach their future goals, and develop a sense of purpose that can last a lifetime. In fact, after Shine, many are inspired to turn their experience into potential careers or advancing their education. We strive to help young people discover a world where possibilities shine brighter.
Since its inception in 1987, Shine has fulfilled more than 8,800 experiences for children and youth across Canada and coordinated 64 Shine DreamLifts.
