The charity I am supporting is Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation.
Charities need us more than ever and that is why I’ve signed up for the global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to raise much-needed funds for youth charities around the world.
Did you know that in Saskatchewan, there are over 25,000 children with diagnosed mental health issues? Even before the COVID crisis, pediatric resources for mental health were stretched. Life-threatening conditions, complex care needs, severe mental health issues, and geographic challenges affecting access to care haven't stopped during this pandemic. If anything, there is a greater sense of urgency.
I need your help to ensure Saskatchewan kids and families have access to the best mental health care possible. It's going to take everyone in our community pulling together. It's all about the health of the next generation. We truly are stronger together.
Thank you from me and all the RBC Race for the Kids participants and charities!
