There are a few foundations that I hold near my heart and The Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation is one of them. Recently they had their annual RADIOTHON at Centre Mall and I was super blessed to have shot some candids of the three day event. Every year I get to see familiar faces and meet new people. Im always amazed to hear their stories... especially since Ive become a mom. So many parents face the facts that their child is sick and suddenly your life revolves around being in a hospital. We are so due for a children's hospital. I can't say it enough.
The 16th Annual Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Radiothon in Saskatoon has closed out another amazing year raising over $618,000, and was only made possible thanks to our incredible donors, sponsors, and volunteers. In addition to raising funds for Saskatchewan’s new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital opening next year, donations from this year’s event helped purchase urgent Neonatal I equipment needs such as 5 Transcutaneous Monitors to reduce needle pokes for babies and one Video Laryngoscope to help babies breathe easier.
Hornoi Leasing matched donations towards Radiothon on January 31st and February 1st, up to $130,000.
On February 2nd, Canadian Pacific matched gifts up to $100,000 through the CP Has Heart campaign to help support a pediatric cardiology space called the “Frog Pod” in the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. Funds raised through the 2018 CP Women’s Open in Regina, August 20-26, will also support specialized equipment in the Pediatric Outpatients Clinic at our new provincial pediatric and maternal hospital.
