14th Annual 800 CHAB Family First Radiothon 

In our community, healthcare workers are superheroes. This has never been more evident than during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Rather than appearing on a movie screen or in the pages of a comic book, more than 1,000 of our healthcare heroes work at the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. Instead of capes, they wear scrubs and other medical attire.

However, even heroes can use a little help, and there’s an excellent opportunity for the community to assist our healthcare heroes at the 14th Annual 800 CHAB Family First Radiothon. This year Canadian Pacific (CP) will be helping our healthcare heroes at the Radiothon by generously matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000. 

Canadian Pacific (CP) chose the area that would later become the city of Moose Jaw as the division point for its railroad in 1881. CP has a long history in Moose Jaw, and it continues to be an integral location for our network, employing more than 650 people locally,” said Scott McGraw, CP Superintendent Operations, Moose Jaw. “Through our community investment program, CP Has Heart, we are proud to be matching the first $20,000 of public donations toward new cardiac equipment for the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital during the 800 CHAB Family First Radiothon. Because after all, everyone has a heart.”

The 14th Annual 800 CHAB Family First Radiothon on September 10th and 11th at the Town ‘n’ Country Mall. The Foundation is raising more than $195,000 to provide our frontline healthcare workers with the latest medical equipment.

Launched in 2006, the Radiothon has raised more than $4.1 million to help our healthcare heroes care for you and your loved ones. Now, they need the community’s help once again.

With the help of  Foundation donors, and the generous support of CP we can provide our medical professionals in the Intensive Care Unit, Surgical Unit, Respiratory Unit, ER and Ambulatory Care with four new cardiac monitors, telemetry monitoring system, defibrillator and crash cart, Holter monitor and chemotherapy chairs.  

In times of crisis or uncertainty, we need our heroes now more than ever. Our frontline healthcare professionals and hospital staff are there for everyone in our community – 24 hours per day, seven days per week. 

With the help of CP matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000, the Moose Jaw Health Foundation is one step closer to reaching its goal.

Every dollar raised at the Radiothon will stay in our community to support our healthcare heroes in providing medical care for residents of Moose Jaw and surrounding communities.  The Moose Jaw Health Foundation greatly appreciates the support of CP.
