The charity I am supporting is Children's Health Foundation.
Charities and the people they support need our help more than ever and that is why I’ve signed up for RBC Race for the Kids on October 15-16 to raise much-needed funds for youth charities around the world.
Donations to Children's Health Foundation will support child and youth mental health at Children's Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre. Mental health needs for our children and youth have increased because of the pandemic. Funding for mental health care is just as important as ever!
- Did you know: Children's Hospital had over 15,000 child and youth mental health visits last year?
- Since the pandemic started, Children's Hospital has seen a large increase in referrals for outpatient mental health services
Your support will ensure access to critical mental health resources for youth facing anxiety, depression, or trauma – especially now when stress is at an all-time high.
Thank you from me and all the RBC Race for the Kids participants and charities!
