The CHEO Foundation is thrilled to announce another record-breaking total for the children and youth who rely on CHEO. The final total announced at the end of the CHEO Telethon was $10,648,449, proving once again that the health of children and youth is a top priority for the people in the National Capital Region and beyond.
The annual Telethon offers the public a chance to see CHEO through the eyes of patient families and meet some of the doctors, nurses and staff who dedicate their lives to making sure every child lives their best life. It also demonstrates the massive impact donations have on patient care and allows the CHEO Foundation to recognize some of the countless supporters, volunteers and major contributors who support the great work done at CHEO.
Proceeds will help CHEO support the development and rehabilitation program, purchase specialized medical equipment, make much needed renovations to infrastructure, and conduct life-saving research in areas such as cancer, youth mental health and childhood obesity. (CHEO news release)
