The 15th Annual Harvard Children’s Hospital Radiothon was once again, a huge success.
In total, $450,578 was raised the past two days, bringing the running total close to $5-million raised for the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon, which is set to open in 2019.
Sash Broda, with the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation called the past two days another incredible year.
“”Yeah it turned out so awesome, we couldn’t have done it without the help of everybody who came down, all the volunteers, the sponsors, the families and kids who came down and all of the people who donated, we were able to raise just over $400,000 this year,” Broda said Thursday from Hill Tower II.

Broda added it’s an honour to be involved with the province’s first children’s hospital.
“Within a couple years our families are going to be able to stay at home for healthcare, and they’re going to be able to receive the care they need without needing to travel to Edmonton, Calgary or Toronto. It’s going to be such a difference for the province and the kids and families of Saskatchewan truly deserve it so this is an honour,” said Broda.
