Pediatrics Ambassador Cody Fajardo

Fajardo Pediatrics Ambassador

A superstar on the field and off, Cody Fajardo has given Saskatchewan residents a lot of reasons to show him support. Volunteering his time to become a Pediatric Ambassador for the Hospitals of Regina Foundation is one more to add to the list. Cody’s truly genuine and caring personality makes him the ideal Pediatric Ambassador in support of kid’s health care in Regina and southern Saskatchewan.

Because of the affection shown to him since arriving in Saskatchewan, Cody began thinking of ways he could give back to the community. “The obvious choice after asking around was to approach the Hospitals of Regina Foundation,” Cody said.  

“I approached the Foundation with the donation from the funds of the t-shirt sale created by (local sports podcast) Piffles Podcast; I soon realized I could become even more involved by helping to promote the importance of strong, local pediatric care here in Southern Saskatchewan.” Along with Stephen Safinuk and Greg McCulloch from Piffles Podcast, Cody toured the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Rawlco Centre for Mother Baby Care, in Regina’s General Hospital, and together they presented the Foundation with a donation of $6,000. 

“I wanted to put the money where it could help the most people possible” noted Cody.Last year we saw over 10,000 children treated in Regina’s Hospitals. More than 4,500 babies were born at the Rawlco Centre for Mother Baby Care and approximately 500 newborn babies admitted to our NICU. Working alongside another Pediatric Ambassador, 11-year old Catherine Okolita, the two will make an irresistible pair in the promotion of kids’ health care funding initiatives for Regina’s Hospitals over the next year.
“The Foundation greatly appreciates Cody’s initiative in supporting pediatric care in Regina’s hospitals,” says Dino Sophocleous, President and CEO, Hospitals of Regina Foundation. “Cody’s enthusiasm will go a long way towards spotlighting the wonderful work that has been done, and will continue to be done, by the community in supporting and investing in the best pediatric care possible for children in southern Saskatchewan.”
