Calling All Young Heroes!
There’s a hero inside all of us just waiting to get out. You can unleash the power of good for kids in hospital by fundraising at your school. You’ll be helping to Transform Possibilities for sick and injured kids during some of the scariest times in their lives.
Our mission is to inspire philanthropy by connecting communities to support Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital to provide specialized maternal and children’s health care throughout the province and pursue the advancement of innovative research.
What will you do to raise funds for Saskatchewan kids? The options are limitless. Fundraise in your favourite way with your class, schoolwide, or with family and friends. Show your strength and courage for kids who need it by joining the Young Heroes League. Now that’s what we call powerful and inspiring.

Top fundraising schools will be invited to a cheque presentation at the Foundation office and we will celebrate your success on our social media channels!
Young Heroes League fundraising can be held any day of the school year! Incorporate it into your school by holding it during spirit week or add it to an existing day. Challenging a neighboring school or a classroom down the hall can be a great way to get students excited about the event and help you build momentum.
Increase student participation by making sure the school community knows about your fundraiser. Include the details in your school newsletter and send students home with a letter for parents or guardians. Display Young Heroes League posters in hallways and in classrooms. Tag us in your social media posts on Facebook and Instagram at @pattisonchildrens, on Twitter at @pattisonkids, or by using the hashtag #YoungHeroes.
After the donation amount has been totaled you can submit your cheque and pledge sheets to Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
