Charity

An avid supporter of the CH.I.L.D Foundation, Adam has made it a priority to focus the majority of his charitable efforts towards this cause.

After his brother Kyle was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at a young age, Adam and his family decided to use golf as a platform to raise awareness and funds in support of the CH.I.L.D. Foundation and for children and young people suffering with Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and liver disorders.

Over the years Adam has leveraged his on course performance in certain PGA Tour events as a vehicle for  fundraising, most notably through his “Birdie for CH.I.L.D.” program where Adam’s personal donation for every birdie he makes is often matched by sponsors, friends and fans alike.

Adam also hosts his annual charity golf event – the Adam Hadwin Charity Classic in support of the CH.I.L.D. Foundation – at Morgan Creek Golf Course in South Surrey, British Columbia. The 2016 event saw Adam and his family raise an all time high of $135,000 for CH.I.L.D. Click here for more on the success of the 2016 event.

CH.I.L.D. Foundation

The CH.I.L.D. Foundation was established in 1995 to fund research for children who are stricken with Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and liver disorders. We are a federally registered organization, and our charitable tax number is BN 89897 4951 RR0001. We are fueled by dedicated volunteers and have created an unprecedented public awareness, due in large part by donated support from the media and the business community. The CH.I.L.D. Foundation has taken this severely under-funded health issue in children and raised the profile to such an extent that health providers and hospital leaders, as well as the general public, are much more attentive to the needs of these children.

It has been twenty-one years since Grace McCarthy, OC, OBC, Lindsay Gordon, and Mary Parsons founded The CH.I.L.D. Foundation. The Foundation has established the very first Endowed Chair in Canada for Pediatric Gastroenterology Research at the University of British Columbia and the first Endowed Program at BC Children’s Hospital.

We have built BC’s first research lab on the site of BC Children’s Hospital. It now has twenty researchers and investigative staff and they are receiving National recognition for their work. We will launch a new initiative this year which employs all the latest technologies such as the Internet and Bio-informatics. A grant from the Government of British Columbia will allow us to initiate a Collaborative Approach to finding a cure for I.B.D. This will be a Canada-wide program. Imagine! All those in clinical and research centres all working together to focus on finding the cure! A first in Canada, this is the way of the future of research.

A total coordinated approach for care from bench research to bedside is envisioned, where young patients have the benefit of a coordinated approach from knowledgeable health care professionals and dedicated research scientists.
