“The 2020 Art of Courage Wall Unveiled at BUH”

North Battleford, SKBattlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation was honoured to officially unveil the 2020 “Art of Courage” wall, dedicated to “Women Who Inspire,” with distinguished guests and participants involved in the project in attendance.  Joining representatives of BUH Foundation and BUH was Warne Noyce of Warne Photography who donated his time and talent to capture the images of the featured “Women Who Inspire.” The Foundation is grateful to Pat Gotto, Senator Jenny Spyglass and the family of RCMP Constable Matea Steinborn, who was unable to attend, who represent this communities’ ”women who inspire” and joined the unveiling ceremony.  Representatives of Discovery Co-op Ltd, the sponsor of the 2020 Art of Courage wall were also present.

“BUH Foundation is grateful to all of those involved in the “Art of Courage” wall and who made this year’s beautiful installation possible.  We have received many positive comments on the wall and we hope it brings inspiration and encouragement to those who come down these halls,” shares Claudette McGuire, BUH Foundation Executive Director.

The “Art of Courage” wall is open to sponsorship each year and the 2020 installation was sponsored by Discovery Co-op Ltd.  Discovery Co-op Ltd. is well known in the community as an organization that places value on their local community.  They have been a dedicated supporter of healthcare within The Battlefords making possible the purchase of new, up-to-date medical equipment that would not be available without their commitment to improving the services at BUH.

The “Art of Courage” wall is located on Third Floor at BUH near the Dialysis Unit, Chemotherapy Department, Cardiac Stress Testing Room and the Pre-Operative Department.  Patients attending to these areas may be facing fear and anxiety during their appointments and it was the goal of BUH Foundation to create a wall that may offer courage and hope during this time.  Representatives feel this has been successful through the powerful message the imagery conveys and the beauty added to what was otherwise a blank wall.

The “Art of Courage” wall will have a new theme and sponsorship opportunity every year.  Details of the 2021 sponsorship details will be released at a later date.
