IWK Telethon for Children reaches new record

For the first time in its history, the 40th IWK Telethon for Children on CTV has raised $7,582,999.32  in support of world-class care at the IWK—the largest children’s hospital in the region. The IWK Telethon is the IWK Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser and supports the most urgent priorities at the IWK, such as equipment, education, research and innovation. This year, Telethon donors helped to purchase essential pieces of equipment for comfort and critical care including sleeper chairs for the IWK’s Birth Unit and a microscope for eye examinations in the IWK Emergency Department. Donations to the IWK Foundation and the weekend of giving can still be made by visiting iwkfoundation.org or calling 1-800-595-2266.
