The CHS-MC Sports Bursary program promotes a healthy lifestyle for children and youth with bleeding disorders through safe physical activities. Chapter youth, 17 years or younger, with a moderate or severe bleeding disorder can apply. 

New for 2021

COVID-19 has made it difficult for Chapter children to participate in organized sports. The Chapter's Member Services Committee is offering 10 - $100 bursaries that can be used towards the purchase of a bike for an eligible child. To apply for the bursary, please fill out the Sports Bursary form and send it to the Chapter Office for pre-approval. Approved applicants will then send the receipt for the bike purchase to the office to receive the bursary. 

The $100 Sports Bursary for a bike purchase will be available until September 1st or until all the bursaries are filled.

Summer Travel Kits for Kids from Bayer


A great big thank you to Bayer Canada for these summer travel kits for kids! A travel size water bottle, sharps container and a cool pack that can Velcro on is super useful. Bleeding disorders families are invited to contact the Chapter at and we will deliver or post the kits for the children in your family.
