The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train is back for its 18th year in an effort to raise money, food and awareness for local food banks. Since its launch in 1999, the program has raised more than C$12 million and 3.9 million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the northern U.S.

Every pound and dollar raised at each stop stays with the local food bank to help feed those in need in that community.

Again this year, the Holiday Train program is encouraging people attending events to bring heart healthy donations. Heart health education and awareness is a tenet of CP’s community investment program, CP Has Heart, which focuses on improving the heart health of men, women and children in communities across North America. To help make this year the best yet for local food banks, The Holiday Train asks fans new and old to follow the train on social media, invite their friends and family and spread the message about the importance of heart-healthy donations by using #HealthyDonations.

Each year, fans of the Holiday Train follow its journey over social media, posting spectacular images of the trains in various cities and landscapes. Those who capture the spirit of the train, holiday entertainment and the spirit of giving are encouraged to enter the “Capture the Spirit” photo contest for the chance to win an exclusive ride on next year’s train. This year, those that enter the contest will help track the train in a customized #CPHolidayTrain map. Further details about the contest will be available closer to the start of the program on the Holiday Train Facebook page.

Please give yourself extra time getting to the event to compensate for crowds and traffic. Also make sure to keep a safe distance of 15 feet away from the train so we can safely continue our journey.
