On top of the grant CN already gives your charity or youth sports team in recognition of your valuable volunteer work, you could win an additional $5,000 for your charitable organization. How far can the money go? Just ask some of our previous winners who helped their charities in inspiring ways (PDF).

One prize of $5,000 will be drawn each in CN Western Region, CN Eastern Region and CN Southern Region for employees and in each Region for CN retirees.

Here’s How:

If you volunteer a minimum of 40 hours with a community-based, charitable organization or youth sports team and qualify for a CN employee volunteer grant or CN retiree grant between January 1, 2017 and November 30, 2017, you will be automatically entered in a draw in your region to win a prize of $5,000 for that charity or youth sports team. Winners will be contacted in December 2017.
