Tomorrow, the Vancouver Canucks are hosting their 23rd annual Canucks for Kids Telethon.
From the CFKF Telethon page:
The Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon, presented by Chevrolet, is an annual radio and television telethon. During the 2011/12 NHL season, the CFKF Telethon raised more than $1.3 million through phone/online donations and fundraising events throughout the year. The Canucks for Kids Fund dedicates resources to assist charities which support children’s health and wellness, foster the development of grassroots hockey, and facilitate and encourage education in British Columbia. Over its 27 year history, the Fund has raised more than $41 million for the children and families of our province.
Always ones to give back, over the past few seasons we here at CHB have been proud supporters of the telethon. In fact, with the help of our readers last season, we pledged to donate over $425! So when we were invited to help out with the telethon tomorrow, I didn’t hesitate to step up.
I’m both proud and excited to be helping take your calls post-game and challenge all of you to call in and donate what you can! While you won’t be able to ask for me specifically, you can donate by calling 1-85-KIDSFUND (1-855-437-3863) or by heading to canucks.com.
And while it would be cool for one our readers to win the 2013 Chevorlet Trax that is up for grabs, the fact your donation will go towards the Canucks Autism Network, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and many other deserving causes is pretty epic if you ask me!
So do you what you can. Spread the word. Pay it forward. Help us help the Canucks help the kids! Anything you can do is completely appreciated!
