FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF) Launches COVID-19 Fund in support of Nurses Across Canada To support nurses across Canada during these trying times, CNF in partnership with Founding Sponsor, the TYLENOL® brand, has established a COVID-19 Fund for Nurses.
This COVID-19 Fund will:
- Support Nurses TODAY
- Help provide mental health support for nurses during this COVID-19 pandemic
- Help provide nurses with the evidence, skills and training they need to better navigate COVID-19
- Develop and share best practices for future pandemics • Explore and support new research in critical care and pandemic response This pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to all of us.
Nurses and health care providers across the country are on the front lines keeping our families, friends and communities safe. Their tireless efforts in this ever-changing battle against COVID-19 are crucial. Nurses are being called on to stay at work while we are being called on to stay at home. They are making decisions based on a pandemic they have never experienced. They are administering the tests, tending to the sick in their hospital beds, long-term care homes and in our communities trying to give comfort where they can to patients suffering the worst effects of the virus. Nurses need our support, now more than ever. Community and corporate partners are showing their support of nurses across Canada. For example, Mud Hero Canada is donating a portion of every race entry to the Canadian Nurses Foundation during the COVID-19 crisis. Additionally, in partnership with Fund Duel, Canadians can easily join CNF’s virtual Fund Duel to support nurses both locally within their own province, or together nationally, in support of CNF’s COVID-19 Fund for Nurses. “The Canadian Nurses Foundation thanks nurses across Canada – nurses who are going above and beyond the call of duty every day. Our nurse heroes are risking their own health and their own lives on the front lines of a war we must win. A battle that together – we will win! A very special thank you to our donors and sponsors who have recognized the important and critical role nurses are playing for all of us.” Christine Rieck Buckley, CEO, CNF To show your support for nurses, go to: https://cnf-fiic.ca/cnf-covid-19-fund-for-nurses/and let’s all do our part! —30— For further information, contact: Chris McGarvey Director of Development, CNF Email: firstname.lastname@example.org TYLENOL® is a registered trademark of Johnson & Johnson.
