BENEFITING: Music Heals Charitable Foundation
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Join us this year on a great ride from Vancouver to Whistler in support of community-based music therapy services in British Columbia.
The Music Therapy Ride raises funds to create new music therapy programs, expand and bring well deserved attention to existing programs, and provision the Bandwagons - mobile recording studios designed specifically for music therapists. These mobile studios contain recording software, sound processing equipment and a variety of musical instruments.
Bandwagons enables music therapists to travel throughout the Lower Mainland and visit clients in community hospitals, complex care residential homes, hospices, mental health and addiction treatment centres. Music therapy benefits all ages groups challenged by mental health issues: children, youth, adults and older adults.
2016 marks MTR's 15th Anniversary with some big goals to celebrate the occasion!
- Committing to provide $100,000 in wages for music therapists in 2017. Initiating a matching program for care facilities seeking a permanent Bandwagon installation.
- Building five new Bandwagons.
Team CMP is rolling with the Music Therapy Ride on September 17th. Our route will take us through downtown Vancouver to Whistler Village. Want to ride with us? We have spaces for 15 bikes but they're filling up fast. Drop us a note: MTRMail@cmpgroup.net.
