We are proud to announce that BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has been chosen as the primary charity partner for the 2020 CP Women’s Open in Vancouver.
Funds raised through the CP Women’s Open partnership will be used to purchase a new fleet of the latest generation cardiac ultrasound machines, recruit an additional interventional cardiologist to the hospital’s catheterization program and train the next generation of medical superstars by supporting two cardiology fellows.
In addition, CP announced its CP Women’s Open community charity partner in Kamloops. CP will contribute $250,000 to fund raising efforts at Royal Inland Hospital in support of cardiac care.
We are so pleased to yet again be a part of such a great cause. Though these amazing partnerships we have helped changed the lives of so many amazing individuals, and we are looking forward to helping so many more.

And along the way, we’re showing heart whenever we can. Find out more on www.cpr.ca or @CPHasHeart.
