In 2019, your support helped raise over
Every year, the CWF participates in the Telethon for Children weekend, however with great disappointment, the 36th IWK Telethon for Children on CTV will not broadcast as scheduled on June 6 & 7 due to COVID-19.
While we will miss staffing the phones and our live Log a Load for Kids cheque presentation, there remains great cause to continue celebrating and donating to your local Children’s Hospital Foundation. Your incredible generosity and fund-raising achievements over the last 20 years has supported children and their families from coast to coast.
We hope you will continue to support your local Children's Hospitals this year by visiting the Children's Hospital Foundation's website.

On behalf of Log a Load for Kids Canada,
A special note from Tracy Cullerton,
I am so proud of Canada’s Children’s Hospital Foundation’s continued partnership with The Canadian Woodlands Forum through our Children’s Miracle Network program. In 2019, your support helped us raise over $51 million for children so they can live their healthiest, most fulfilling lives. This is a contribution that will personally touch the lives of the more than 6,000 children and their families who walk through the doors of our 13 member hospitals every day. The Partnership Report provided will give you a glimpse of the epic impact you have had across Canada.
The past few weeks have been challenging for everyone. Please know that you and your stakeholders have been on my mind. I take comfort in our continued partnership because I believe we are stronger together and that supporting children’s health has never been more important.
I am excited to see what we will accomplish in the coming year and beyond for Canadian kids. Together, if we change the health of children, we will change the health of Canada.
LOG-A-LOAD FOR KIDS CANADA RAISES OVER $133,000.00 IN 2019!
The Log-A-Load for Kids Canada program through the generous support of the forest industry across Canada, made great strides
Many people were involved in organizing several events during 2019 which contributed to our great success, such as:
The list of contributors is long and we appreciate the donations and efforts of each and everyone of you.
Every little bit counts. We also acknowledge the donations made by many groups to silent auctions and raffles which help us raise all these funds.
Full program registrations for our Spring Meetings includes a donation to the Log a Load for Kids Canada program. Through your donations and the tremendous support from program sponsors, 100% of all proceeds will go directly to providing life-saving equipment and professional health care for local children.
“Doing something for the next generation is what logging and forestry are all about!”
Log A Load For Kids Canada is a national giving campaign through which loggers and other forest industry people donate the value of a load of logs, or any amount raised through fundraising events, to local Children’s Miracle Network (CMN)-affiliated hospital foundations. One hundred percent of all contributions go to local CMN Canada hospital foundations; overhead expenses are contributed separately by sponsoring associations, the Children’s Miracle Network, and corporate and private underwriting.
Since its inception in September 2000, Log-A-Load for Kids Canada has raised over $1.5 million for various children’s hospitals across Canada. None of that would have been possible without the dedicated work of many, many volunteers who have donated time and effort to organized large and small fund-raising events. All of these efforts put together make for a very successful program.
Children’s hospital foundations affiliated with Children’s Miracle Network are committed to improving the lives of local children. Funds raised by way of Log-A-Load For Kids Canada will be used to purchase life-saving equipment in addition to support breakthrough medical research and other services that do not qualify for Provincial Ministry assistance.
