2017 CHEO Telethon on CTV


CHEO Telethon on CTV – June 10 – 11, 2017

A celebration of Heroes for CHEO!!!

The CHEO Telethon on CTV is a tradition unlike any other in the Nation’s Capital. This special weekend celebrates the caring, dedication and commitment that our community has for the health of our children and youth. Throughout the year Heroes for CHEO from all walks of life choose to support the families who need CHEO and The Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (OCTC). The Telethon is the culmination of fundraising efforts throughout the year by hundreds of diverse groups. Events include everything from school fundraisers to golf tournaments to in-store customer campaigns. CHEO’s patients benefit from employee groups from varied sectors such as financial services, retail, professional associations, construction, real estate, hospitality, restaurants and more.

This annual outpouring of support means the world to the thousands of patients and families who rely on CHEO to be there for them when a child is sick or injured. During the CHEO Telethon, some of these remarkable patient families allow CHEO to share their stories through video and live interviews. Their experiences reveal the strength of family, the devotion of CHEO and OCTC staff, and the power of donor engagement. Interviews with doctors, nurses, researchers and staff highlight the inner workings of the ever-changing medical practices and technology that are vital to making our children and youth the healthiest they can be.

Donations to the CHEO Telethon are used to support the purchase of life-saving equipment, fund research into the treatment, prevention and cure of childhood diseases, recruitment and education of caregivers, and development of programs.  The live broadcast from the EY Centre airs on CTV from 7 p.m. on June 10th to 7 p.m. on June 11th. In that time we will meet extraordinary patients and families, world-class medical personnel, researchers who are changing the landscape of medical science and local celebrities who generously lend their name to this fundraising initiative.

The CHEO Telethon is 24 hours of Heroes for CHEO, and we hope you will tune in and be a #hero4cheo.
