Did you know that 1 in 5 Canadians experience mental illness in any given year? And that 4,000 Canadians die by suicide every year—almost 11 people per day? To raise mental health awareness and support individuals affected by mental illness, we are challenging ourselves to move for every person lost to suicide each year. Sixsense will complete challenges based on tiered donation goals:
• $500 Step Challenge: When our group raises $500, I will complete 4000 steps/day for 1 week.
• $750 Jumping Jacks Challenge: When our group raises $750, I will work with the sixsense team to collectively complete 4000 jumping jacks in 1 week.
• $1,000 Sit-up Challenge: When our group raises $1000, I will work with the sixsense team to collectively complete 4000 sit-ups in 1 week.
- $4,000 Bonus Challenge: When we raise $4000, the sixsense team will complete an additional challenge!
With your support, we can change how the world sees and treats mental illness. We can break down stigma and lead important conversations about suicide prevention. We can give people time to get the help they need; families time to heal; and researchers and clinicians time to make breakthroughs and offer new treatment options.
