STARS Radiothon raises over $400,000

The STARS 2022 Critical Care in the Air Radiothon raised over $400,000 this past week for STARS Air Ambulance operations.
Jeri-Lynn Johnston, director of donor relations and development with the STARS Foundation, said they’re appreciative of the support that raised $403,940.

“We often say that STARS was built by the community for the community, and we’re really in awe of the generosity from individuals, groups and businesses across this great province who have made our second annual Critical Care on the Air radiothon another huge success,” said Johnston.

On April 1314, radio stations provincewide including CKRM  shared stories of how patients across Saskatchewan have been given a second chance at life, thanks to STARS and the supporters who make our missions possible.

The money raised by the radiothon will help ensure STARS remains available 24/7 to help those living, working or playing across Saskatchewan. More specifically, the funds will help purchase items like new butterfly ultrasound machines for the back of our helicopters, which are the equivalent of flying intensive care units,” Johnston said.
