IWK Telethon

Be Part of the Magic of the IWK Telethon!

This year the IWK Telethon for Children on CTV will be celebrating its 35th year!

Broadcasting live on CTV on June 1 & 2, 2019 from the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, along with remote sites at Centre 200 in Sydney, Murphy’s Pharmacies Community Centre in Charlottetown and McAllister Place in Saint John, the IWK Telethon is a Maritime tradition that highlights just how deeply our community cares about the IWK.

Your Telethon donation will help the IWK purchase priority equipment and fund programs, research and new facilities.

Although the Telethon broadcast isn’t until June 1 & 2, you can make a donation today.
