On Air: for Healthcare Radio-thon

On Air or Healthcare

On Air: for Healthcare Radio-thon is an on-going campaign.
 Donations will be accepted throughout the year and an official tax receipt will be issued.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated!!!

Funds raised will support the new capital campaign for BUH Foundation, “Diagnostic Detectives: Solving your Health Mysteries.”  This campaign will raise funds for new equipment and technology for the lab at BUH.  Lab tests and their corresponding results are an integral part of diagnosing patients and providing the proper course of treatment.  The dedicated lab team works behind the scenes to provide results quickly and efficiently to help provide the best care possible.  The new equipment purchased will capitalize on the knowledge and skills of the lab team and ensure they have the best to provide the best.

 Your donation and support has the power to change the future of
healthcare at BUH.


Traditionally held in May, the 2020 On Air: for Healthcare Radio-thon had been postponed due to COVID-19.  However, we are now back and ready to join you for an exciting day of fundraising for healthcare!  Tune in on Friday, Oct 23rd, 6:00am - 6:00pm.

Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation and CJNB/Q98/93.3 The Rock/ BattlefordsNOW of the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group and presenting sponsor, Fisher's Drug Store, have once again partnered to raise funds to provide enriched healthcare for The Battlefords and surrounding communities.  The 2020 "On Air: for Healthcare" Radio-thon will take place remotely (no donors are allowed at BUH, we apologize for the inconvenience) on Friday Oct 23rd with broadcasting starting at 6:00am on all three radio stations.   Funds raised are for BUH Foundation’s 2020/21 capital campaign, "Diagnostic Detectives: Solving your Health Mysteries" for new equipment for the lab at BUH!

The 2016 "On Air: for Healthcare" Radio-thon was hugely successful and raised most of the $600,000 BUH Foundation had committed to the purchase of a new CT Scanner.  In 2017 the community came through again and helped to raise the funds for the new Ears Nose & Throat Surgical equipment which had a campaign goal of $380,000.  In 2018, "On Air: for Healthcare" Radio-thon contributed largely to the $216,000 campaign goal to purchase a new Central Cardiac Telemetry System to provide an up-to-date heart monitoring system within BUH.  The community stepped up again in 2019 to reach the goal of $500,000 towards a new mammography unit for Medical Imaging to help detect breast cancers early and save lives.  Thank you for the continued generosity that has made a difference to patients in our community.  We are grateful!
