100 Hours for the Kids at the IWK

$251,063.10

The 2021 100 Hours for the Kids at the IWK Grand Total

Bell Media’s 100 Hours for the Kids at the IWK radio fundraiser raised an incredible $251,063.10. After taking a pause last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, listeners of the ten radio stations across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick once again showed their support of this annual event, giving generously to help patients and families who rely on care at the IWK.

This year donations made to 100 Hours for the Kids at the IWK will help support the urgent priorities of IWK Health including the purchase of new equipment like the blood monitoring system for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). This is used during a process known as ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation). The ECMO system acts as an artificial heart and lungs for babies, children and youth who need support.
