CN Canadian Women’s Open Raises $800,000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation

WINNIPEG — The CN Canadian Women’s Open raised $800,000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba through the CN Miracle Match program, in which CN matches dollar for dollar donations during the tournament.

“CN is delighted with these results and the support shown by Manitobans for the CN Miracle Match,” said Claude Mongeau, CN president and chief executive officer. “The City of Winnipeg has been a truly excellent host for the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Open, and its citizens should be proud of both their hospitality and their generosity.”

“At CN, we are deeply committed to the strength of our communities by ensuring the health and safety of our youth. In the last five years, the CN Miracle Match has raised over $4.3 million for children’s hospitals in Canada,” continued Mr. Mongeau. “Working together with the host communities, we are generating lasting benefits to these vital institutions. We look forward to continuing this community investment tradition next year when the CN Canadian Women’s Open will be held at the Hillsdale Golf and Country Club in Mirabel, Quebec.”

“We are so grateful to CN for their corporate leadership through the CN Miracle Match Program,” said Lesia Sianchuk, Executive Director of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. “CN has motivated so many donors to participate in the CN Miracle Match Program and the legacy that you are leaving in Manitoba will truly make an impact on child health care and pediatric research.”
