"TD is thrilled to be the official bank of the Saskatchewan Rush, and the presenting sponsor of the Rush's annual Hero's Night, in support of the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital. We look forward to this night every year, as it brings our community together. It's always a high energy game with our champion team, but even more importantly, the evening events raise funds for children, and their families, and ensures they receive the support they need." - Ryan Barclay, District Vice President Branch Banking, Saskatchewan, TD Bank Group.
To date, the Saskatchewan Rush and TD have worked together to raise $59,261 for JPCHF. Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for the enhancement of maternal and children’s health care in Saskatchewan and Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital.
“We are delighted to be a part of this important partnership with the Saskatchewan Rush and TD,” said Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. “We encourage everyone to come out and support this great initiative. With the opening of our new maternal and children’s hospital just a few short months away, this is a critical time for fundraising to ensure this new hospital meets the needs of children and families across the province.”
