We support a broad range of initiatives focusing on wellness & prevention, health treatments, and youth. Recent sponsorships include:
We are proud to partner with Saskatchewan in motion for the Get Our Community Moving Challenge Powered by Saskatchewan Blue Cross. This annual challenge encourages Saskatchewan communities to make the commitment to physical activity. Participating communities register a project that will get more kids, more active, more often. They then log time spent in physical activity as they compete for the grand prize of $10,000. Registration is now open. Learn more.
For two nights only per season the BHP Billiton Enchanted Forest closes its gates to vehicles for the Saskatchewan Blue Cross Light Walk. Our team was there in November and January to greet walkers of all ages as they experience the lights while enjoying physical activity with family and friends. Proceeds are shared by the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation and the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation.
Each November staff look forward to our annual United Way Fowl Supper & Silent Auction. Through silent and live auctions, and company-matched staff payroll or cash donations Saskatchewan Blue Cross raised over $50,000 in 2013 for the United Way in Saskatoon and Regina.
For the past two years, we have also participated in the United Way Day of Caring in Saskatoon. Staff has volunteered time to help brighten up the kids playroom at Saskatoon Interval House, and refurbish the walk-in centre at AIDS Saskatoon.

“The Push2Play Mini-Stick Zone at Blades games has benefited both our organizations immensely. Kids coming to Blades games watch exciting hockey, play in the Push2Play Mini-Stick Zone, and develop activity habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle.”
