Time to join the Immunodeficiency Canada team!!!

Immunodeficiency Canada had been participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge since 2012 and has raised funds that had helped families living with PI. The Scotiabank Charity Challenge is a special event for the organization because it brings together staff, patients, families and healthcare professionals for one day as they walk/run together to raise money to help PI patients and families.

Join the Immunodeficiency Canada 2016 team today. Thanks  to our generous corporate sponsor covering our administration cost, 100% of your donation will go to the Alastair Fund. The Alastair Fund provides funding to families dealing with financial strain due to illness from PI.
