Stocks in this article: CNICNR

COQUITLAM, B.C., Aug. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - CN announced today that the CN Canadian Women's Open, held at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam, B.C., raised $1.8 million for BC Children's Hospital Foundation through the CN Miracle Match program. The program was created in 2006 to raise funds for children's hospitals by matching funds raised through various initiatives connected with the Open.

"This is a tremendous feat," said Claude Mongeau, CN president and chief executive officer. "The people of the Vancouver area and from all over British Columbia have shown their support for the CN Miracle Match since the launch of the campaign in May of this year all the way through the end of the Open, and we thank them for their generosity. We at CN are very proud to generate lasting benefits to such a vital institution as the BC Children's Hospital.

"We look forward to continuing this tradition of support for pediatric care next year when the CN Canadian Women's Open will be held at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club in Edmonton."

"Children from across British Columbia and the Yukon will benefit directly from the generosity of the many people who have responded with enthusiasm to the CN Miracle Match program," said Teri Nicholas, BC Children's Hospital Foundation's president and chief executive officer. "This gift will ensure that children are treated with the latest in medical technology and that research undertaken at BC Children's Hospital delivers benefits to children in B.C., across Canada and around the world."

With this year's results, CN has now raised more than $8.2 million for children's health since the CN Miracle Match was launched at the inaugural CN Canadian Women's Open in London, Ont., in 2006.

ABOUT BC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL The province's only full-service hospital dedicated to serving children in BC and the Yukon, BC Children's Hospital is accessible to the largest population of children and youth served by a single Canadian hospital. All children who are seriously ill or injured are referred to Children's Hospital and are either treated at the hospital facility in Vancouver or, with consultation from Children's specialists, in their home community. Last year, BC Children's Hospital had over 212,000 patient visits. Funds raised by BC Children's Hospital Foundation are used to support BC Children's Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute.
