CHARITY AND FUNDRAISING 


The Saskatoon Great Sweater Run is proud to partner with the Children's Wish Foundation.

At the Children’s Wish Foundation our mandate is to work with the community to provide children ages 3-17 coping with high-risk life threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish. 

Granting wishes is one of the most amazing things we can do for a child and their family when the future is unknown.   We cannot change the diagnosis or the outcomes, but we can provide wish children with amazing joy, a light at the end of a long tunnel, and memories that can be cherished forever.   To date the Saskatchewan Chapter has granted over 1100 wishes and we are working on the wishes of 130 children at this time.  

Please donate!

 

Save paper and donate/fundraise online!

 

Tax receipts will be issued for gifts of $25 or more and will be mailed out by the charity at the end of the year.  
Prizing will be made available by the end of December.
