Roger's House Telethon
Roger’s House Telethon set for Mar. 28 vs the New York Rangers
"We can’t change the destination, but we can make the journey a little easier."
Volunteer, Roger’s House
Since 2004, Rogers Sportsnet has teamed up with the Sens Foundation for the Roger’s House Telethon. The 9th Annual Sens Foundation Telethon for Roger's House is presented by CN and will take place Thursday, March 28 beginning at 6:30 p.m. prior to the Senators game vs the New York Rangers.
Ian Mendes of Sportsnet and Leanne Cusack of CTV Ottawa serve as hosts for the evening. More than 100 volunteers, corporate sponsors, Scotiabank Place employees and supporters make the telethon possible each year! The broadcast will introduce viewers to some of the children and families that count on Roger’s House to provide them with the best care possible during a very difficult time.
Roger’s House, the charity of choice of the Sens Foundation, provides a comprehensive pediatric respite and palliative care program with elements of outreach, residential hospice, pain and symptom management; grief and bereavement counselling, and research. Since opening its doors in May 2006, Roger’s House has provided more than 13,000 days of care and over 2,100 admissions. Children and youth are invited to come to Roger’s House for support, care and assessment by the specialized team of medical professionals. Immediate family can stay in the facility to receive support and education, with the goal of fostering quality of family life.
