Dear Friends and Family,
For the third year in a row, on Saturday September 16th I will be running 5K for the RBC Run for the Kids supporting youth mental health through the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook.
Mental health is a serious issue affecting over two million Canadians, and it is estimated that only one in five kids in need of help currently gets the support they need – often because they don't know where to turn. Those of us who have witnessed the effects of mental illness firsthand know what a terrible disease it is – one that can truly ruin lives and tear families apart. Fortunately, mental illness can be overcome with proper resources, support and counselling, and it is the goal of Sunnybrook's Family Navigation Project to combat this serious issue by helping Canadian youth navigate the complex mental health system. For more information on the event and cause, please visit:
As the proud son and nephew of two wonderful Sunnybrook doctors, I see the dedication that its employees have for their professions on a daily basis and I know that the funds raised in support of the Family Navigation Project will be put to good use.
This is a cause that really means a lot to me and one that I am proud to support. Any support and generosity you are willing to provide is greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much in advance for your support!
PS – If you’re interested in running with us on September 16th, please feel free to reach out to me anytime for details. We would be thrilled to have you on our team!
