The ‘Mane’ Event

The ‘Mane’ Event is a series of short inspirational videos created by Companions in Courage Foundation to raise spirits and to encourage healing (emotional AND physical). The subjects are real people who have overcome so much to have success in life. May their stories encourage you to a better day, week and life!

Santa Connection 2021

Make the holidays bright for pediatric patients.

Pediatric patients stuck in the hospital this year remain impacted by COVID restrictions. They will not be able to visit Santa at the mall, and many won't even be allowed to visit with family. Hopefully you, and your family, can help make a difference by participating in Santa Connection 2021. Your donations guarantee that patients enjoy a (virtual) personal visit with Santa, and ensure a gift for each child.

Courage for Companions

The Companions in Courage Foundation was founded by NHL Hall of Famer, Pat LaFontaine in 1997. Our mission is to ensure that “no child in the fight for life or health should ever have to go through it alone.”

Our primary focus is to connect patients in pediatric hospitals to their family, classmates and heroes. During COVID-restrictive times, that mission has taken on even greater meaning. We have partnered with the NHL and others to build interactive Lion’s Den rooms in hospitals, partnered with Microsoft to provide mobile XBox kiosks, partnered with Google to provide Chromebook tablets and delivered 3D printers to hospitals in need.

By virtue of their location (primarily in major metropolitan areas), children’s hospitals tend to be the safety nets to the most vulnerable in our society. The objective of the foundation is to treat the emotional state of children who are going through the most traumatic experiences of their lives.

Please join us as we deliver courage, friendship, compassion and support to those children overcoming illness and life-threatening obstacles. We are recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charitable organization (#16-1493691). Our goal is to provide assists to these children and their families. Stick taps to you for stepping up as our teammate!
