Dan Cugnet is hoping to be picked up on August 24th from a remote location outside Saskatoon. He will be there with just his cell phone in hand, trying to raise $50,000 for STARS Air Ambulance as part of the Rescue on the Prairie fundraiser.
Cugnet, the chairman of Valleyview Petroleums, has already begun the work on fundraising. As of the writing of this article, he was halfway to the goal, a good start for the fundraiser which has an overall goal of $250,000.
“STARS is one of those things in Saskatchewan that sort of touches all of us, you know, and all families, whether it's a friend or relative,” Cugnet explained when sitting down with Discover Weyburn. “It’s unfortunate that people need the service, but we are so fortunate that we do have it.”
Those who want to help Cugnet reach his goal, so he doesn’t get left stranded in a field, you can make a donation on the Rescue on the Prairie website.
