Kanata Walmart hosts campaign kick-off for CHEO!

On Friday, May 5th the Walmart store at 5357 Fernbank Road, Kanata will host an event to launch their 23rd annual spring fundraising campaign for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

From May 14 – June 5, 2017, Walmart associates are true heroes for CHEO’s kids. As one of the top national partners of Children’s Miracle Network, Walmart stores across Canada commit to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals through grassroots fundraising and selling miracle balloon icons at the cash. All funds raised locally will benefit CHEO. Since 1994 our region’s 25 Walmart stores have raised $5.9 million dollars for CHEO.

Jacob Randell is CHEO’s representative in this year’s Children’s Miracle Network Champions program presented by Walmart Canada. Jacob will be on hand to say a few words about the difference Walmart’s support makes for patients like him.

We invite our friends in the media to join us for this announcement.
