Stay tuned for Teddy Bear Convoy 2022!

Teddy Bear Convoy for Telethon 2021

It was Another Unprecedented Year, But the Need Remains

Over the last 15 months, the Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation, like every other charity and business, has had to adapt and adjust, in every way imaginable and unimaginable.
Our community fundraising Projects, led by our exceptional volunteers, are being creative in their efforts to continue vital fundraising for the Janeway, and we appreciate their determination!
The Teddy Bear Convoy, one of the Janeway’s longest-running fundraisers, was designed to raise funds for the Janeway Hospital. Seeing the excitement and smiles on the faces of the patients, their families and staff waiting on the curb, and knowing there are groups gathered at hospital windows, is a highlight for the drivers.

How to Give:

Keeping in mind the health and wellness of the drivers, their families, and the organizers, the Teddy Bear Convoy is pre-empted for this year once again. We know how enjoyable it is to congregate and socialize before and after the event, however the current public health restrictions do not allow large gatherings to take place.
We still need your help, now more than ever, to continue providing the best care possible.

Please show your support online, by giving here: https://9643.thankyou4caring.org/
(choose “Teddy Bear Convoy” in the drop down “Donate to” menu.)

Go back to your family and friends who sponsor you year after year and ask for their support.
Good news! When you donate online, an official tax receipt is emailed to you automatically!

 

Why are we raising money?

The 2021 Janeway Children’s Miracle Network Telethon’s goal is to raise $2.5 million to advance newborn care and to upgrade specialized surgical equipment.
