Calling All Young Heroes!
There’s a hero inside of 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 bring healing and hope to sick and injured kids during some of the scariest times in their lives.
Our mission at Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is to raise funds for the enhancement of maternal and children’s healthcare in Saskatchewan NOW and IN THE FUTURE when Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital opens in 2019. Join us and accept the mission to help make every Saskatchewan child better.
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.

Q: HOW DO I CHOOSE A DATE?
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.
Q: WHAT CAN I DO TO PROMOTE MY EVENT?
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.
Q: HOW DO I SUBMIT MY FUNDS?
After the donation amount has been totaled you can submit your cheque and pledge sheets to Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
