McGill IBD Fundraiser

The McGill IBD Research Group is back in person with their annual fundraiser.

A night of comedy with Derek Seguin in support of the McGill IBD Research Group!


Organized by the McGill IBD Research Group through the Montreal General Hospital Foundation, this event raises funds for patient-care at the IBD clinics in the McGill teaching hospitals – the MUHC IBD Centre at the Montreal General Hospital and the IBD clinics at the Montreal Children’s Hospital and Jewish General Hospital.

Your generous contribution will help alleviate the gaps in care for the IBD community by supporting the hiring and training of dedicated IBD healthcare professionals, as well as ensuring that the McGill IBD Research Group continues to provide free and accessible educational sessions for those affected by IBD.

This year, the McGill IBD Research Group is hoping to invest a total of $300,000 in IBD care. This includes:

  • IBD Nurses/IBD Auxiliary & Support Staff: $171,000
  • Psychologists: $86,000
  • Awareness building & communication: $35,000
  • Education events: $8,000


Our honouree this year will be Lorne Mayers, President of the McGill IBD Research Group, for his numerous years of dedicated volunteerism with the Group and bettering the IBD community.
