The charity I am supporting is Children's Health Foundation.
Charities need us more than ever and that is why I’ve signed up for the first-ever global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to raise much-needed funds for youth charities around the world.
Donations to Children's Health Foundation will support the child and youth mental health at Children's Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre. Mental health needs for our children and youth are increasing because of the pandemic. Funding for mental health care is just as important as ever!
- Did you know: Children's Hospital has almost 11,000 child and youth mental health visits annually.
- Since the pandemic started, Children's Hospital has seen a 16% 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!
