Welcome and Thank You For Finding Us.

Since 2003, Rotary4Kids, a fundraising initiative of the Rotary Club of North Bay, has raised and spent more than $1.5 million to assist area children with special needs overcome challenging circumstances. Your donation is put to work by:

  • assisting children with costs for various treatments or therapies when funding is exhausted or unavailable
  • assisting or supplementing travel and accommodations costs for out of town medical appointments
  • assisting to purchase wheelchairs, specialized scooters,  tricycles, bicycles, and other mobility devices
  • assisting with procuring other devices identified as beneficial when funding is lacking or inadequate
  • assisting with funding for building renovations that allow or improve in-home mobility for children
  • supporting the Nipissing Association for Disabled Youth (N.A.D.Y.) summer and other recreation programs

Rotary4Kids accepts donations throughout the year, but the bulk of our fundraising takes place in March or May each year in conjunction with “Kev’s Kids on Country 90.5 radio. As a volunteer based local Service Club, you can be assured overhead and fundraising costs are kept to a minimum, so your donation is spent on area children.

MEDIA LAUNCH May 22, 2024

The Rotary Club of North Bay launched its annual fundraiser today, with the help of this year’s Rotary4Kids Ambassadors, the JDD Class of Sunset Park Public School, Country 90.5 FM’s morning host Kevin Oschefski, One Kids Place Children’s Treatment Centre, and this year’s Presenting Sponsor, The Redpath Group, who presented a cheque for $10,000 to the club to kick things off. This year’s fundraiser has been appropriately named “Redpath Rotary4Kids”.
