Caring for our most precious resources

Our Mission

The mission of the Log a Load For Kids Foundation program is to raise funds to improve children's health through treatment, education and research at Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals and other local children's hospitals.

Who Are We?

Log A Load for Kids is an annual campaign which began in 1988 when loggers and others in the forest products community donated the value of a load of logs to their local CMN hospital. Today, Log A Load is a leader in CMN Hospitals’ fundraising, raising more than $2 million annually through golf tournaments, fishing events, dinners, truck loads of log donations and other events.
