We support a broad range of initiatives focusing on wellness & prevention, health treatments, and youth. Recent sponsorships include:
2015 marks our 18th year as the Title Sponsor of the Saskatchewan Blue Cross MS Walks throughout the province. Since 2002 we have helped the MS Society raise over $8 million to support the 3500+ Saskatchewan residents living with MS. Our partnership with the MS Society has become an important part of our corporate culture and an annual highlight for our staff. This year, we were proud to have the largest alumni team at the Saskatoon Walk on April 26.
On May 14 our staff will be taking to the streets of Saskatoon on the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s BIG BIKE. We will be pedaling this 30 passenger bicycle through Downtown Saskatoon to raise awareness and funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan. Sunshine, water guns and a little friendly competition have helped make this event a favorite. We hope to defend our Team Spirit Award title in 2015!
Each November we 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 $59,000 in 2014 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. On June 10 we will continue this initiative and partner with a service organization to do our part in making our community a little brighter.
