Reaching Out . . . to Transform the World

MS Walk

mswalkCanada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Based on current incidence rates, the MS Society of Canada estimates that approximately 1000 new cases of MS are diagnosed in Canada each year, which means three more Canadians are diagnosed with MS every day. Chances are you have a relative, friend, coworker, acquaintance or classmate with the condition.

“My role as a mother of two children living with MS is to listen, provide encouragement and believe in the hope that one day we will end MS.  I encourage everyone to raise as much money as possible to ensure the research and support is there for all the people we love.”

Joan McFarlane-Rolfs, 20+ yr Saskatchewan Blue Cross MS Walker

Lace up your walking shoes and take a step for someone you love. Join us in the fight to end MS. The Saskatchewan Blue Cross MS WALK in Saskatoon takes place on April 27th, 2014 at the Archibald Arena. For more information or to register and to start fundraising, visit www.mswalks.ca or call 244-2114.

Saskatoon Wild & Redwing Rezoning Announcement

Good Day Saskatoon Redwings and Saskatoon Wild parents and players.

As many of you know our zone boundaries are reviewed periodically due to the continued growth of the city and the growth of minor hockey along with it. There is currently a difference of approximately 200 players between the Wild& Redwing zones.

Effective for the 2014-15 season registration the zone boundary between the Redwings and the Wild will be changed in the Willowgrove neighborhood. All other communities will be unaffected.

Willowgrove will be divided at Willowgrove Blvd & Willowgrove These two streets and all streets north of them will remain in the Wild zone. All areas of Willowgrove, south of these two streets will now be part of the Redwing Zone. To be clear, starting with registration for the 2014-15 season, players living on Maguire, Lamarsh, Van Impe and all streets in Willowgrove to the south of these three streets will be registering as Zone G Redwing players.

If you have any questions regarding where you should be registering next season, please contact a zone registrar at registrar@saskatoonredwings.ca or registrar@saskatoonwild.com.

We fully understand that for some rezoning is a difficult time of change. Please view this as a time to play hockey with the many familiar faces you have participated in other activities with and have attended school with over the years while Willowgrove has filled in. It is also a great time to meet new family friends and forge new and everlasting relationships with those you have not met yet.

With change comes new opportunities, with rezoning and other variables, both the Redwing Zone board and the Wild Zone board would like to encourage any parents that would like to be involved in organizing hockey for their players to check out the zone websites for openings on their respective boards going into the 2014-15 season. If you are interested in joining our efforts please contact E.J. Babey, Zone Commissioner of the Redwings or Deon Harris, Zone Commissioner of the Wild to discuss positions in detail at commissioner@saskatoonredwings.ca or commissioner@saskatoonwild.com.
