CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION OF SASKATCHEWAN
The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan is the sole
foundation responsible for fundraising for the new Children’s Hospital
of Saskatchewan. The new provincial hospital will serve children from
across the province, offering leading edge healthcare equipment and
technology, research programs and innovation, with a focus on family care.
SIGA’s contribution of $500,000 has been designated towards the needs
of women in the ante partum unit. This unit will provide care to women
with complex obstetrical complications such as pre-term labour, unstable
diabetes, hypertension, medical induction of labour and miscarriages.
The new children’s hospital will benefit families, mothers and children
from across the province for years to come.
2010 SASKATCHEWAN FIRST NATIONS WINTER GAMES –
SASKATOON TRIBAL COUNCIL
Over 3,500 highly skilled First Nation athletes competed in the 2010
First Nations Winter Games in Saskatoon from April 5 to 10. The
Saskatoon Tribal Council (STC) hosted the prestigious youth sporting
event where athletes from Saskatchewan’s ten tribal councils and
independent First Nation communities tested their athletic abilities.
The athletes not only competed in various sporting events that included
volleyball, badminton, curling, broomball and hockey, but also left the
games with the long lasting benefits of camaraderie, teamwork, a sense of
pride, and relationships that will last a lifetime. SIGA has been a supporter
of the First Nations Winter Games since SIGA opened its doors in 1996.
RIDER GAME DAY
On July 31, 2010, SIGA sponsored the Saskatchewan Roughriders for the
14th annual Rider Game Day. We invited over 300 children and youth as
well as First Nations Veterans to a barbeque in the end zone and to watch
the game. Many of these youth never have an opportunity to go to the
games and had a lot of fun showing their Rider pride.
