On May 31st, 2015, Hadyn Kivinen, 15 years old, passed away unexpectedly from SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy).

The family would like to do what they can in order to ensure that no other family has to experience this tragedy.

During Hadyn’s life, he participated in a wide variety of activities and sports. In his last year, as a grade 9 student, he joined the LoEllen curling team. He enjoyed the sport so much that during the 2014 holiday season, he organized a fun spiel with his own family, hence the reason they have chosen a fun spiel in memory of Hadyn.

Ultimately this event is to raise both awareness and funds for SUDEP research, and to celebrate and remember Hadyn.

We will graciously accept any monetary or gift-in-kind donations towards our event.

Charitable receipts will be issued from the Sick Kids Foundation Hadyn Kivinen Memorial Fund.
