2020 fundraising cause

Learn More

The Festival of Trees has raised over $22 million for critically important causes at the University of Alberta Hospital site. We continuously seek and support bold solutions to seemingly insurmontable health challenges, to ignite new discoveries that change the world.

Alzheimer’s disease is one of those challenges.

Dr. Jack Jhamandas and his team of world-renowned researchers have made a major discovery, reversing the effects of Alzheimer’s disease in mice in the lab.

This year, we hope to raise over $1 million to support his research, with a hope of restoring memory in the millions of Canadians battling Alzheimer’s disease.
