The 2019 Telethon raised $225,000, bringing the total over the past 36 years to $4.00 million dollars to support Hospice Palliative Care services in our community. To date, this service remains largely unfunded by the Ministry and every cent stays local!
The 30 Hour Telethon is run entirely by volunteers with no administrative costs. More than 95 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to the operation of this unique service in our community.
It is estimated that over 8000 volunteers throughout Leeds & Grenville have contributed time towards the Telethon over the past 36 years.
