I just wanted to let you know your support is very near and dear to my heart. Our family went through a troubling time a little over 3 years ago when my uncle, who was battling with cancer, decided to take his own life. This was extremely diffcult on my aunt and their two children. They were able to find support through the family navigation program at Sunnybrook and are doing much better now to this day. Your support will help other families like mine! This is the 3rd year I am running in this race and it has become a yearly tradition for me (however it used to be 15k haha). I can't wait!
Your support is very important to me and will help Sunnybrook’s Family Navigation Project navigate more youth struggling with mental health and addiction concerns.
As many as two million young people in Canada are struggling with mental health issues such as an anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, depression or addiction; 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.
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!
