Why your participation makes a difference

As a non-profit organization, fundraising is critical to keeping STARS’ helicopters operational and providing life-saving support to critically ill and injured patients across Saskatchewan. The fundraising goal of this event is to raise $250,000, with 100% of participant fundraising supporting STARS air ambulance.  In order to reach our goal, we are hoping that each team can fundraise $2,000 in donations. For a team of four, this means that each ryder would try to raise $500. By participating in this event you are not only supporting STARS’ missions, but you are also joining in the STARS fundraising community with over 300 other participants.
