I’m participating in the RBC Race for the Kids Toronto to support youth mental health, a cause that is very near and dear to my heart.
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.
I was very fortunate that, in my time of need, I was able to access the resources that I need. But many are not aware of what those resources are or how to access them, don’t feel comfortable doing so, or can’t afford to do so.
By sponsoring my run, you are helping youth find the right mental health support they need, when they need it most.
Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
