Three summer events cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic

To ensure the safety of our supporters, sponsors, volunteers and staff, The Health Foundation has cancelled three major events planned for this summer: The Charity Golf Classic in June, Rhythm 'n Ribs in July and the Road Race and Community Walk in August.


These events have been successful fundraising events for the Foundation, but as importantly, have allowed us to have fun with friends and family.


If you have previously attended these events, or sponsored participants, we would greatly appreciate it if you would consideration making a donation instead. 

But Airways for Health Radiothon was a huge success in April

Airwaves for Health raised a record amount, more than $183,000. 

Our fundraising priorities for 2020

A pandemic is something none of us have gone through before; it is a completely new experience and can be a little scary. We have been very fortunate here in Saskatchewan, but when we look at the world around us we see how devastating COVID-19 can be. 


The equipment needed for COVID-19 is mostly being funded by government. There are a few secondary items needed to support patients, residents and frontline staff that the Health Authority has asked the Foundation to purchase. That equipment is for the Yorkton Regional Hospital and also the long-term care facilities in this region. 


However, almost all the equipment for which we are raising funds this year will maintain and enhance the services available at the Yorkton Hospital.

Each spring local agri-businesses and people seed the crop, and harvest it in fall. The result is that Farming for Health has raised more than $1 million in its first five years. And still going strong. 

Your support is necessary, and greatly appreciated
