Make-A-Wish Saskatchewan makes chicken coop playground wish a reality with Northern Strands Group of Companies

posted by Certified Sales and Rentals    |   April 25, 2022 15:09

Spring is FINALLY here, and we are excited to take part in community events again. The Northern Strands Group of Companies, consisting of Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing, Certified Mining and Construction and Northern Strands have been sponsoring Wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation for several years. Every year we fundraise with the goal of making one Saskatchewan’s Child’s Wish come true!

We recently had the opportunity to join the Make-A-Wish “Fairies” as they announced a child was going to receive their wish. This year we were matched with a little girl named Lennon. Her wish was to have a chicken coop playground, so she had an amazing place to play with her pet chicken. Her new chicken playground will have a cute new house for her chickens and a teeter totter for them to play on. Lennon is an amazing young girl who is sweet, compassionate, and just a joy to spend time with. We were thrilled to be there when she was told her wish was coming true. The look of joy and excitement on her face warmed our hearts. We are all looking forward to Lennon’s chicken coop wish being granted. No more than Lennon herself!

Make-A-Wish Canada is a fantastic organization dedicated to granting the wishes of critically ill children. Research has shown that children who have had their wishes granted can help build physical and emotional strength needed to fight critical illness. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Canada has granted over 36,000 wishes across the country!

Jared was the main focus of the event, being the first Super Bowl wish granted in Saskatchewan.   They played Jared’s football highlight video which ended in a chorus of clapping.   Jared was an amazing football player.   Jared really appreciated the fact that we came down to meet him.   We had many excellent conversations with him.   We had so much fun talking football with him that our guys almost missed the T off!

Here is a picture of our guys at the Chris Getzlaf Golf Tournament with Jared and some great comments below.

“It was very nice to meet Jared and his family. When I got to talk with Jared briefly about football, any name I would mention, he knew exactly who I was talking about. It’s great a football fan such as Jared got to go to the Super Bowl. He really enjoyed it”.



Jeff Caswell


“The Children’s Wish Golf Tournament was a great experience to be part of! Jared and his family are such great people to talk and share stories with.  It was really uplifting to hear their story and stories from other families about how the Children’s Wish Foundation helps and contributes to make their lives a little easier. The celebrities that were in attendance were a class act too! Everyone involved in this event deserves great praise for their efforts in making such a wonderful day and experience for the children and their families, as well as the golfers taking part in the day.”



Nathan Reed


"The 2nd Getzlaf and Friends golf tournament was a fantastic experience.  It was great to see the Children's Wish Foundation being supported by such a great group of sponsors, celebrities, and volunteers.  Meeting Jared's family and hearing about their Super Bowl Wish experience first-hand made me proud that the NS Group of Companies would support such a cause."


We saw first-hand what a difference Jared’s Wish made in his life.   Both Jared and his family were very grateful.
