IWK Telethon for Children is this weekend

The 33rd annual IWK Telethon for Children will be broadcast live on CTV Atlantic this weekend.

The event helps to raise money for the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, which cares for countless children from across the Maritimes each year.

In addition to providing specialized and primary care services, the centre is engaged in leading-edge research, works to promote healthy lifestyles for families, and supports education opportunities for health professionals and other learners.

The telethon will broadcast live on CTV Atlantic from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, and from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

You can donate by calling 1-800-595-2266 or on the IWK Foundation website.
