The 7th Annual Hoops from the Heart event has been set for Wednesday 20th May at the University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre. Participation has been confirmed by all of the coaches (U of M and U of W men’s and women’s coaches) with the men’s game commencing at 6:15 pm and the women’s following immediately at 7:30 pm

It will be a combined U of M / U of W men’s team versus and All Star Veterans Team followed by a traditional women’s tilt between the U of W and the U of M women’s teams. The games will invite 150 inner city children, each receiving a free meal, a 2015 Hoops from the Heart T-Shirt and a basketball to take home that is signed by one of the players at the game.

It is hoped to raise additional money that will be used for an University Scholarship to help an inner city kid play basketball at the U of W and U of M for their men’s or women’s teams. There will be an official Phoenix Suns jersey signed by future Hall of Famer Steve Nash ready for someone to win at the game (valued at over $500). A recap of last year’s event can be seen in the below video. To offer your support for the event or to make a donation please contact Grant Pierce at GPierce@sbrc.ca.

Hope and Healing
Introduction
First there was the St. Boniface Hospital, then there was the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, and then came St. Boniface Hospital Research - which has evolved into a research campus that includes the Sakharov MRI Centre and the I.H. Asper Clinical Research Institute.

Together they create and maintain a tradition of excellence in medical care, education, and research.

The St. Boniface Hospital is Western Canada's first hospital. It was founded in 1871 by the Grey Nuns, a religious congregation inspired by Mother Marguerite D'Youville. The Mission, Aims and Objectives of the Hospital were then, as they are now:
  • To provide the highest quality of care to its patients and of service to its community
  • To participate in the education of personnel
  • To promote research for the improvement of patient care
The St. Boniface Hospital Foundation was established in 1971 as part of the centennial celebrations of the Hospital. The Foundation acts as the primary fund-raising body for the St. Boniface Hospital Inc., and promotes excellence in health care research related to the prevention and treatment of disease, the promotion of good health, and improvements in patient care. All with the overriding objective of improving individual quality of life and respecting the individual.

St. Boniface Hospital Research is a result of the emphasis that both the Hospital and Foundation place on medical research.
