Thank you for taking the time to visiting my page and consider contributing towards my fundraising goal. Youth mental health and addiction is a cause that hits very close to home. As a result, I have decided to support and participate in the RBC Race for the Kids Toronto.
The mental and emotional health and well-being of youth is a serious and overlooked Canadian health issue. At any given time, 15 per cent of our young people are affected by mental health issues such as an anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression or addiction; yet only one in five will receive the specialized treatment they need.
By sponsoring my run, you are helping Sunnybrook provide youth and their families with greater accessibility to the mental health support they need, when they need it most.
Thank you for considering making a donation to not only help me reach my fundraising goal, but to bring better access to support for youth and their families.
