This is my fifth year with the Race and Motria's second. We are participating because mental health - particularly youth mental health and addiction - is an important and unfortunately a growing issue for our society. There are very few super lucky families that are left untouched by mental illness - and the resources to assist are thin at best.
By making a donation, you are helping youth - and equally importantly, their families - find the right mental health support they need, when they need it. Also, events like this help reduce the social stigma attached to mental illness, which is a HUGE impediment for people to get help before things get really serious.
No donation is too small. Thank you for your support.
