Royal Columbian scores touchdown-inspired $120,000 gift from CP
A high scoring Canadian Football League (CFL) postseason has added up to a sizeable donation for Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation thanks to Canadian Pacific (CP).
CP, through its community investment program CP Has Heart, will make a total contribution of $120,000 to cardiac care at Royal Columbian. CP pledged $5,000 for every home team touchdown during the first two CFL playoff rounds and an extra $10,000 per touchdown by either team during the Grey Cup game in Vancouver.
CP donates $90,000 to Royal Columbian Hospital for cardiac care
In conjunction with Canadian Pacific’s sponsorship of the CFL Grey Cup, the railroad’s CP Has Heart Touchdowns program is making a run to the end zone in the name of cardiac care, delivering cash to Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. The funds will purchase equipment to improve critical cardiac care at Royal Columbian Hospital.
For every home team touchdown made during the playoffs, CP contributed $5,000 to Royal Columbian for a total of $90,000. Now, all eyes are on the 102nd Grey Cup game on November 30 in Vancouver where every touchdown scored by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Calgary Stampeders will generate an additional $10,000 for Royal Columbian, home to one of the busiest cardiac centres in Canada.
