All funds raised from the Gift To Health Livestream went towards the Greatest Needs Fund. This fund includes significant mental health resources geared towards youth mental health in the community and other necessary healthcare equipment enhancements required to serve the region more effectively.

What do you get when you combine 120 players, 12 hours of play, and a lot of really bad movie puns? An awe-inspiring fundraiser for youth mental health, that’s what.

The Lloydminster Region Health Foundation (LRHF) hosted its 12-hour Gift to Health fundraiser. Consisting of a dodgeball tournament, appropriately named Dodge the Stigma, and raised a total of $295,234.

“Over the years, the goal of the Gift of Health has changed,” said LRHF CEO Stephanie Munro. 

“Last year we raised money for diagnostic imaging. This year, and we see this as our biggest need, we’re raising money for youth mental health as well as a TIMS machine for the speech-language and pathology department at the Lloydminster Hospital.

“We’re raising money for healthcare, but it’s so much more than that, we’re building community.”
