Jason Simpson listens as Dr. Anne Doig speaks at the STARS lottery launch last week (Photos by Cam Hutchinson) trailer worth $132,000. The draw for that combo will be made June 29. The 50-50 winner will likely take home approximately $775,000. To stay in the air, STARS needs to raise $10 million each year, said Rod Gantefoer, executive director of the STARS Foundation. The lottery makes up about 25 per cent of the total. “We’ve flown over 3,300 missions to almost 500 communities in Saskatchewan over the past four years,” Gantefoer said. “There are countless numbers of lives that have been touched by STARS over this period of time. It is a great pleasure to know we are changing things, especially in rural Saskatchewan to the betterment of all the citizens of this province.” Simpson is one who has first-hand experience with STARS and one of its bright red helicopters. “I want to thank the guys in the blue suits,” he said to female and male members of the STARS staff at the event. “They are awesome and are a crucial part of Saskatchewan.” For more information on the lottery, visit

Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express t was an intersection Jason Simpson had crossed safely hundreds of times. That changed on a July 2013 day. An accident at the intersection near his Ruthilda-area farm should have killed him. STARS played a huge role in saving him. Simpson said virtually everything from his waist up was broken in the accident. He credits local first responders and a 21-minute helicopter ride into Saskatoon for saving his life. He spent nine weeks at Royal University Hospital and another 11 at City Hospital, he told those gathered at the beautiful Greenbryre showhome where the 2016 STARS Lottery was launched. Simpson said the force of his vehicle being hit by a one-ton truck pulling a trailer was so strong he and the driver’s seat in his truck ended up in the passenger compartment, with his head breaking the passenger glass. The truck rolled three times. “STARS came out to give their assessment and pick up whatever was left of the pieces of me,” he said. “I don’t remember much of that or the next two or three weeks after that. My chances of survival were very very slim, according to the EMS and the doctors and nurses on the staff.” Simpson is now in a wheelchair, but has resumed his life as a farmer and working in the ag industry for Dupont. “STARS gave me a second chance at life, at being a hero to my kids.” This is the fifth year for the STARS lottery. It sold out last year and almost 50 per cent of tickets for this year’s lottery had been purchased at press time. There are 2,019 prizes in the draw, held Aug. 10. The grand prize is a $1.5 million D & S home with a golf-course view in Greenbryre. Among the other prizes are five vehicles, 12 vacations, and 318 sports and adventure prizes. The list goes on and on. The early-bird prize is a truck and DC051611 Darlene
