Log A Load For Kids raises $2.2 million in 2016 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

SALT LAKE CITY [March 2, 2017] – Log A Load For Kids, a group of individuals and businesses in the logging and forestry industry, collectively raised $2.2 million in 2016 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals), a nonprofit raising funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across North America.

What originally began as loggers and wood-suppliers donating the value of a load of logs to their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital has expanded into hundreds of creative events across the nation. Generous volunteers organize various activities throughout the year including golf tournaments, carnivals, fishing events and skeet shoots to collect donations that benefit kids and families in their community.

“Thank you to all of our Log A Load For Kids volunteers for raising $2,273,296 in 2016,” said Sherri Hansen, Chair of Log A Load. “We are so fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers across our nation raising money for sick and injured children in their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”

“We’re so appreciative of the donations and the volunteer hours logged each year by the men and women involved with Log A Load For Kids,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Their efforts have resulted in countless miracles for the 62 kids who enter a CMN Hospital every minute.”

Log A Load for Kids has raised more than $48 million for sick and injured children since partnering with the charity in 1988. Log A Load funds impact 58 of the 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America. Hospitals utilize the funds based on what they need the most — typically for purchasing lifesaving equipment, supporting top therapy programs and providing charitable care.
