The ChIPS Fundraising team, comprised of young people from the program, will be hosting an ONLINE TRIVIA EVENT to help raise funds for the wider ChIPS Community! So, come join the ChIPS crew in its very first Online Black Tie Trivia fundraiser event!
Get together in a team with 5-7 of your friends or family members and dress up! There will be prizes to be won throughout the night!
You can register as a team or as an individual, here!
Teams should be between 5-7 members but if you are registering as an individual, sign up and select ‘individual’ and you’ll be assigned to a team!
To register a team, kindly like everyone to donate a registration fee of whatever amount you can afford in support of the Chronic Illness Peer Support Program. We understand this is a trying time financially for most but your generous donations will go a long way in supporting young people living with a chronic illness

Your Kind donations will go towards helping many Chippers in a very direct way!
Twice a year, the ChIPS program run 3-day camps! Chippers and the ChIPS staff alike, all agree that ChIPS camps are the highlight of the calendar year! They give young chippers the opportunity to partake in inclusive, fun events that many have been unable to do in the past due to their conditions. Not only this, camps are a safe environment for chippers to meet new people and create strong, long-lasting friendships!
Your donation will directly help ‘sponsor a chipper’, paying for the costs related to getting them on camp!
Furthermore, with the COVID-19 pandemic and the program migrating to an online format, your donations will also aid in allowing us to continue hosting online social events, which help keep the community connected, as well as future in-person events once regulations permit it. In the past we’ve hosted events such as trivia nights, murder mysteries, online scavenger hunts, online escape rooms and much more! Your donations will help support the chips program in continuing to run these events at a higher level!
