Hello, and welcome to my Crowd Rise fundraising page! :)
This May, Turlough and I are running the BMO Half Marathon. While it is a wonderful thing to run for ourselves, BMO gives us the even more wonderful opportunity to run for others. Through their RUN4HOPE charity program, we are able to create a social impact, turning running into an even more beneficial activity through the act of giving.
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is one of Canada’s most established national mental health charities. They support the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness or addiction by building capacity, influencing policy, providing services and helping people access the community resources they need. They help fight the social stigmas surrounding mental health and addiction, and support some of those who need it most.
The Canadian Mental Health Association provides mental health promotion and mental illness recovery-focused programs and services for people of all ages and their families, as well as offers suicide prevention programs designed to help make BC communities safer – and help save lives – by preparing key members of every community with skills to help people who are at risk of suicide.
Mental health affects us all. Together, we can make a difference. :)
Thank you very much for your time. xx
