Welcome To
Companions In Courage

The Companions in Courage Foundation was founded by NHL Hall of Famer, Pat LaFontaine as a way to connect hospitalized children with their family, friends and heroes. We are recognized as a public 501(c)(3) charity, building interactive playrooms in hospitals. In addition, we have been selected by Microsoft to administer a program delivering mobile XBox 360 kiosks to patients bedsides throughout North America. Through the generosity of our “companions,” innovative communications tools introduce technology to the healing process and improve the hospital experience for all patients by giving them “courage”.

    Our Mission

    The Companions in Courage Foundation was originally founded by NHL Hall of Famer, Pat LaFontaine in 1997. We are recognized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and eligible to receive public donations. Our efforts have gone to raising funds to build interactive rooms in children’s hospitals throughout North America. Through innovative communications tools, these playrooms replace the isolation of a hospital with a connection to family, friends and celebrities during each hospital stay.

    Our mission is quite simple. No child in the fight for life or health should ever have to go through it alone.
