Hey Saskatoon, It's Telemiracle Time!

posted by Fitness Focus    |   January 24, 2017 19:17

Saskatoon, it's once again time for Telemiracle. We're calling on all gym members, friends and staff to pitch in and buy a helping hand in support of Telemiracle 41 on March 4th & 5th.  You can make your minimum $2 contribution to any of the front staff by cash or at point of sale. 

Thanks to your donations to Telemiracle, the Kinsmen Foundation has the opportunity to improve the quality of life and the independence of hundreds of people every year. Saskatchewan residents are able to access special needs equipment and medical assistance that wouldn’t otherwise be attainable.

Helping Individuals

Innovations like ceiling track systems, portable lifts and ramps, funded by the Kinsmen Foundation, are making it possible for people to live at home and still receive the care they need. And with equipment like specialized wheelchairs, electric scooters, vehicle conversions and communications devices, people are achieving a level of independence they didn’t think possible.

When people can’t access the level of care they need at home, they must often travel to health care facilities in other parts of the province or country. And while the medical procedures are covered by health care, the patients and their families must pay for their own travel, meals and accommodations. By easing the financial strain,

As the Summer Winds Down

posted by Fitness Focus    |   August 11, 2016 18:19

Its understandable if you have been just too busy for the gym during the summer; it happens to everybody!  But we hope you're still staying active, either playing with your kids, joining a sports team or a rec league, or pick up a new hobby. But if you feel like you need a challenge or something to work towards now that you've spent much of your summer focussed on relaxation, try a marathon.  Marathons are a great way to amp up your training and give yourself a physical and mental challenge after a few summer months of taking it easy.  It's also a great way to connect with some friends if you decide to do it together.  It's nice just to be social and get out to meet some new people or bump into an old friend you haven't seen in a while; and if nothing else help out a good cause.  Here are a few marathons and runs coming up in the next few months that you might want to consider.

Saskatchewan Sweethearts 2013 Calendar

posted by Fitness Focus    |   July 28, 2012 02:04

Supporting Telemiracle 2013.

Fitness is one of the fastest growing passions in Saskatchewan.  The Saskatchewan Amateur Body Building Association is becoming widely recognized for its innovative approach to promoting fitness, health, and well balanced lifestyles. While many individuals have the luxury of participating in these events, many others do not due to illness or other medical conditions.  Saskatchewan women are getting together to raise funds in hopes of assisting individuals whom are in need of special medical requirements.

Calendars to support Telemiracle 2013 can be purchased at Fitness Focus and Stellar Gear in Saskatoon

All funds raised from this project will be donated to the Kinsman Telemiracle Foundation.  The Kinsmen Foundation raises funds throughout the year in order to provide equipment or other requirements to those who are in need of medical assistance.  This can range from specialized medical equipment (for individual, groups, and agencies) to coverage of travel expenses when specific procedures are necessary.  The assistance of this foundation allows individuals and their families the ability to reduce stress and acquire services that they may not have otherwise been able to access.

The women that appear in this calendar represent hard work and dedication.  On behalf of all the women that participated in this project, I would like to thank you for purchasing our 2013 calendar.

About Telemiracle

Thanks to your donations, the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation has the opportunity to improve the quality of life and the independence of hundreds of people every year. Saskatchewan residents are able to access special needs equipment and medical assistance that wouldn’t otherwise be attainable.

Helping Individuals

Innovations like ceiling track systems, portable lifts and ramps, funded by the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation, are making it possible for people to live at home and still receive the care they need. And with equipment like specialized wheelchairs, electric scooters, vehicle conversions and communications devices, people are achieving a level of independence they didn’t think possible.

When people can’t access the level of care they need at home, they must often travel to health care facilities in other parts of the province or country. And while the medical procedures may be covered by health care, the patients and their families must pay for their own travel, meals and accommodations. By easing the financial strain, the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation allows families to focus on what only they can provide – love and care.

Helping Groups

All across Saskatchewan, loving care homes have been established with a family atmosphere to provide comfort and care to people with special needs. Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation provides funding for things like ceiling track systems, specialized tubs, lifts, specialty beds and personal care equipment to make those homes even better suited to provide quality care.

Helping Health Facilities

Every year, specialized medical equipment that is not fully funded by government is purchased in different communities to ensure healthcare facilities have everything they need. This year Kinsmen Foundation grants included:

  • $66,000 to the Lloydminster Region Health Facility for a portable ultrasound;
  • $1,250,000 to the Regina General Hospital towards and electrophysiology lab to serve people with heart issues throughout southern Saskatchewan;
  • $115,000 to purchase infant hearing screening equipment at Royal University Hospital;
  • $140,000 to the Preeceville Integrated Health for various pieces of equipment;
  • $150,000 to the Moose Jaw Hospital develop an equipped isolation room;
  • $161,000 to the South Saskatchewan Stroke Care Network to rehabilitate stroke victims
  • $500,000 to St. Paul’s Hospital for cystoscopy equipment at the new urology centre.

Combined with previous years’ contributions to Estevan, Yorkton, Lloydminster, Swift Current, Saskatoon and other communities, you can see that Telemiracle dollars reach out to every corner of the province.

Helping People Every Day

In the past year, 579 applications for funding were granted for amounts ranging from $125 to $1,250,000. That’s more than one grant for each and every day of the year, and every dollar comes directly from donations to Kinsmen Telemiracle. Your donations will make a difference – you really are “helping people every day.”
