MONTREAL, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - CN (TSX: CNR) (NYSE: CNI) announced today that the eighth edition of the CN Hockey Greatest Stars Challenge raised $350,000. The proceeds will benefit charitable organizations supported by the CN Employees' and Pensioners' Community Fund.

The Marie-Vincent Foundation, the Ted Nolan Foundation, and Big Brothers Big Sisters ( Canada and U.S.) will each receive $75,000. The remaining sum will be divided between beneficiaries located in Canada and the United States.

Since its first edition, in 2003, the CN Hockey Greatest Stars Challenge has raised $1.7 million for charity.

Vee Kachroo, CN vice-president of supply chain solutions and co-president of the fundraising campaign of the CN Employees' and Pensioners' Community Fund, said: "At CN, we are committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate.
