Desiree Rattray is Named the 2014 Scotiabank Game Changer in Saskatchewan, Winning $25,000 for Charity

REGINA, SK--(Marketwired - November 08, 2014) - Scotiabank and the Saskatchewan Roughriders proudly announced today Regina's Desiree Rattray has won the Scotiabank Game Changer contest for the 2014 Rider regular season. She was recognized on the field during the game for the outstanding work that she has done in the community and awarded a $25,000 donation for Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.

"We want to congratulate Desiree Rattray for being named our Scotiabank Game Changer for the Roughriders 2014 season," said Bob Taylor, Scotiabank Vice President of the Saskatchewan South District. "This program means so much to us at Scotiabank as it brings attention to local heroes who dedicate their time and energy to helping our community. Desiree is inspiring and a great example of how one person can make a meaningful difference."

After losing their young son Will, Desiree and her husband, Jason, became dedicated to having a children's hospital in the province, supporting the work of the Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. After spending a considerable amount of time in children's hospitals themselves, they understood the impact that having this type of facility in the province would have on families like theirs.

Desiree was selected as the 2014 Season Scotiabank Game Changer from a group of eight finalists who had each been named a Home-Game Scotiabank Game Changer earlier in the season and were awarded a $1,000 donation for their designated charity. Desiree was selected as the overall season Game Changer based on a combination of fan voting and a judging panel.

During the CFL regular season, Scotiabank has recognized a total of 24 Scotiabank Game Changers across sponsored CFL markets.
