I’m participating in the RBC Race for the Kids Toronto to support youth mental health.
As many as 1.2 million young people in Canada are struggling with mental health issues; yet only one in five will get specialized treatment. This is largely because families don’t know where to turn to find the services their children need.
Sunnybrook's Family Navigation Project provides support to youth and their families who are seeking to access resources for mental health care. Often, the resources are available; the challenge is finding them.
This year, we are launching the Executive Team Challenge. This is a way for us to increase awareness and donations, while at the same time indulging in some good-natured competition for bragging rights!
You can help in one of two ways:
(1) Sponsor me - in doing so, you are helping youth find the right mental health support they need, when they need it most.
(2) Join me - register to participate as part of "Team Cass". It's a fun event, and you can help extend the fundraising network by reaching out to your family and friends.
Please make a donation today - or better yet, sign up yourself - and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
