Hospital Home Lottery

Sisterhood YXE Market & Closet Sweep
Did you know your shopping and closet clean up can change someone’s life? Join Sisterhood YXE for their annual Local Market and Sweep with partial proceeds in support of the Royal University Hospital Foundation’s Community Mental Health Endowment.
June 28 is the day Paige UnRuh left the hospital following a cardiac event. To commemorate the occasion and give back to those who helped save her life, she holds the annual Hearty Starty event to help raise funds for cardiac care at Royal University Hospital.
Purple Day for Epilepsy
Founded in 2008, by then nine-year old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness.
Shake, Rattle and Roll
The Shake Rattle & Roll Motorcycle Rally for Parkinson’s Disease is an annual event held in St. Gregor, Saskatchewan. To date, this event has raised $40,000 for the Dr. Ali Rajput Endowment for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Research at Royal University Hospital.
10,000 Kettlebell Challenge
The idea of doing 10,000 kettlebells in a one-month period is quite a physical challenge, but it is possible. And a project that raises awareness about Parkinson’s disease and provides a direct opportunity for people to financially support Parkinson’s research is definitely winning solution.
Walk of Life
Prevent & Recover from Heart Disease and JOIN the WALK OF LIFE! The Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada hosts a walk/run in various cities across Canada. Saskatoon’s Walk of Life is held annually in June.
Your Community. Your Health. Help us make a difference.
