Proud supporters
of Canada’s Children’s 
Hospital Foundations for
over 20 years!


In 2019, your support helped raise over
$51 million for children so they can live their healthiest, most fulfilling lives.

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.

A special note from Tracy Cullerton,
VP Corporate Partnerships, Canada’s Children’s Hospital Foundations

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.

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.

What kind of fundraisers will Log A Load
for Kids Canada hold?

Log A Load For Kids Canada has been created to provide any logger with an opportunity to contribute the value of a load of logs to their local Children’s Miracle Network hospital foundation. Log A Load for Kids Canada participants will also organize special fundraising events to supplement donations. Sponsored golf tournaments, cookouts, log and equipment auctions, and raffles are just a few of the creative ideas that can be implemented in your community. And your generosity will receive recognition through local media coverage as well as at the national level.

Are only loggers involved?

Employees of sawmills, pulp and paper mills, and other forest enterprises that depend on loggers often find many ways to lend a hand, by helping sponsor fundraisers, making direct donations, and assisting in promotion and planning.
