Y ..... Landmark 15th year of helping to feed local communities The CP Rail Holiday Train will pass through our area and stop Sunday night, Dec. 15. Approxi- mate times of stops: 6 p.m. Buf- falo, 7:30 p.m. Annandale, 9 p.m. Kimball. No stop is planned for Eden Valley this year, but will pass through town around 10:30 p.m. The schedule, available on CP's website at, and on CP's Facebook page, outlines plans for the "train of lights" to partner with communities in raising food and money for local food banks. The 2013 CP Holiday Train program launches Monday, Nov. 25, in Kahnawake, Quebec, for- mally kicking off the three-week journey of two brightly deco- rated trains across Canada and the United States with its first U.S stop in Scranton, Pa. The Canadian train will wrap up its journey Dec. 16, in Port Coquitlam, British Colurribia, while the U.S. train will journey across the U.S. Northeast and Mid- west before its final show Dec. 19, in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. Since the Holiday Train pro- gram first launched in 1999, it has raised $7.4 million and 3 million pounds of food for local communities. Musicians traveling aboard the trains will play more than 150 free concerts from their boxcar stage. CP asks that attendees bring a non-perishable food or cash donation, and all donations stay with the food shelf in the com- munity where they're donated. Items like infant formula, canned meats, and spaghetti sauce are in particular demand for the mil- lions of North American's who turn to food banks each month. Each Holiday Train consists of 14 brightly decorated railcars, including a modified boxcar that has been turned into a travel- ing stage for performers. For the 15th year, CP's elves have updated the thousands of LED lights that adorn the sides of both trains with new holiday designs. Isaac's Foundation donates $40,000 to the U of M Since the Foundation began plans to:' in January of 2008, more than $185,000 has been raised to spon- sor an Endowment Chair with the University of Minnesota, Isaac's HOPE Fund for Curing Childhood Cancer. Isaac's Foundation has reached a level of support with the U of M where our research dollars have been distributed upon much needed programs overseen by our Medical Advisory Committee, Pediatric Hematolo- gist Oncologist Drs. Joseph Neglia and Brenda Weigel. Last year, the U of M made progress in many priority areas in pediatric cancer research and Isaac's Foundation is a valued partner in this work. We'd like to highlight two areas in particular that the University of Minnesota has made significant strides. Development of new therapies for brain tumors Opening of 1311-MIBG therapy at University of Minnesota In the next year, with the con- tinued support of Isaac's HOPE Fund the University of Minnesota Add a new faculty member to their division whose research is focused on developing new thera- pies for childhood leukemia; Continue development of new agents for brain tumors by part- nering with researchers across the Academic Health Center; Concentrate their research efforts around a bone tumor often diagnosed in adolescence, osteosarcoma; And support ongoing quality oflife research in their childhood cancer survivor clinic, which will help them understand the long- term side effects of treatments for childhood cancers. Childhood Cancer is the #1 Disease Killer of America's Chil- dren and yet remains under- funded. Your donation will make a difference in the life of a child who has been affected by child- hood cancer. Everyone from Isaac's Foundation would like to thank our communities for your continued belief in our mission, Thank you! Our seventh annual chili feed will be March 29, 2014, at Elmerz Restaurant and Event Centre in Sauk Centre where we will con- tinue to raise money to support childhood cancer research, all are welcome!
