We are all breathing a sigh of relief with the announcement that the Ontario government is allowing the Scotties Tournament of Hearts to take place in Thunder Bay, Ontario. We are happy to report that with the help of TSN and Curling Canada, the Sandra Schmirler Foundation will be able to hold its annual telethon on the first Sunday of the Scotties. Although we are disappointed that we can not be there in person, we are thankful the athletes will be able to showcase their skills on a national stage. Our second virtual telethon will take place on Sunday January 30, 2022 with the incredible support of Net2phone and IKS Media.
Last year our telethon raised a record $700,758! As a result, we were proud to provide grants totalling over $1 million to hospitals in every province and territory in 2021. Since 2001 we have funded almost $6 million of life-saving equipment to NICUs across the country.
