Get ready to run, jump, bounce and slide for a great cause – SaskGaming’s Charity Championship is back and registrations are now open!
Taking place on August 11, the event will feature up to 44 teams competing in a giant inflatable obstacle course in the Casino Regina parking lot for a piece of a $25,000 prize pool.
“SaskGaming launched Charity Championship in 2016 to celebrate Casino Regina’s 20th anniversary, and raised over $72,000 for 30 different Saskatchewan charities and non-profits,” Minister Responsible for SaskGaming Christine Tell said. “The event is a fun and unique way for the corporation to support its mission of giving back to the people of this province.”
Participating teams will fundraise before the event for their charity or non-profit of choice. The more money a team raises, the greater advantage they will have in the competition. All prize money and funds raised will go directly to the team’s charity or non-profit.
“Our inaugural Charity Championship was such a huge success that we brought it back for a second year,” SaskGaming President and CEO Susan Flett said. “We’re excited to once again watch Saskatchewan’s giving and generous spirit come to life as we work together to support and build our communities.”
