CN Canadian Women's Open Raises $2.7 M For The Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation

Stocks in this article: CNICNR

This year's results bring eight-year total to nearly $11 million raised through the CN Miracle Match program

EDMONTON, Aug. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - CN (TSX: CNR) (NYSE: CNI) announced today that the CN Canadian Women's Open, held at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club in Edmonton, Alta., raised $2.7 million for the Stollery 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.

"Mission accomplished," said Claude Mongeau, CN president and chief executive officer. "The people of the Capital Region and from all over Alberta have every reason to be proud as they have shown tremendous support for the CN Miracle Match program and I want to thank them on behalf of CN for their generosity. We are very proud to leave a long-lasting legacy to the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation that will benefit many children and their families in Edmonton, across the province, and beyond."

"What the people of Alberta and Western Canada have accomplished through their generous support, and that of CN's matching program, will ensure that the sickest kids benefit from much-needed critical care expansion, and enhancing the Hospital's already excellent transport program," says an appreciative Mike House, President and CEO, Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation. "We can only do what we do with the public's support and the generosity of fantastic community-minded organizations like CN."

Nearly $11 million worth of miracles

With this year's results, CN has helped to raise almost $11 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.

CN announced earlier this year that it is relinquishing its title sponsorship of the Canadian Women's Open after the 2013 season, while continuing its title sponsorship of CN Future Links - Canada's national junior golf program - and increasing its support of grassroots junior golf across Canada. But the Miracle Match will live on. The next instalment of this great story will be presented at a later date.

CN is very proud of its role as a backbone of the North American economy. And the CN Miracle Match partnership over the course of the CN Canadian Women's Open has given CN an opportunity to act as a backbone to children's health initiatives, enabling children's hospitals across Canada to purchase needed equipment, to expand their programs and facilities and to continue to make the most fundamental contribution imaginable to families and communities - addressing the health needs of our sickest children.

ABOUT THE STOLLERY CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION The Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation is dedicated to funding excellence at the Stollery. Excellence comes in many forms: specialized equipment; sub-specialty medical education to attract, retain and train the best and brightest medical minds; research that paves the way to the discovery of new treatments and cures for child health issues; and specialized programs that improve patient and family outcomes. Donations also benefit the Stollery's neonatal and pediatric emergency transport teams that provide critical care to rural and remote communities throughout western and northern Canada.
