Rescue on the Island

Rescue on the Island is the flagship fundraising event for STARS in Manitoba and with the generous support of colleagues, businesses, friends and family, our participants have helped to bring several millions of dollars to support the work of STARS. 

The Challenge

Each participant is required to raise $50,000 and the rescue only happens when that goal has been reached or exceeded. The participants are equipped with a cell phone and have access to friends and family for morale support in the form of donations.  

On September 6, 2018, a group of brave community leaders will trade in their business attire for flight suits.  Each participant will compete to raise as much money as possible to earn a flight back to civilization, using the only tool they’ll have – their cell phones.

The intrepid participants will undertake a variety of challenges on the island to help secure their escape.

More than $325,000 was rasied last year during Rescue on the Island to fund much needed services provided by STARS Air Ambulance.
