Red Patch Boys (RPB)
Red Patch Campaign for Mental Health & Wellness
Supporting Mental Health Home & Away
Red Patch Boys has created a new campaign to bring awareness to mental health and wellness. The initiative will combine a campaign of fundraising donations, posting RPB-centric awareness content over the next month and conclude with involvement in a 5K Charity run. Proceeds will go towards CAMH - The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
We have officially kicked off the campaign bringing awareness to World Suicide Prevention Day on Tuesday, September 10. Over the following weeks, a series of posted quotes/stories will go out on Red Patch Boys social media platforms ending unofficially on World Mental Health Day, Thursday, October 10. Our campaign will raise funds for our very own Charity Challenge team in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (5K Division) on Sunday, October 20.
With your support, we can change attitudes, behaviours and culture. We can drive action and make a difference. We can shape a world where mental illness is seen in the same light as every other illness, and all people receive the level of care they need and deserve. A world where Mental Health is Health.
1 in 5 Canadians experience mental illness in any given year. Together we can break down stigma, fund innovative research, and provide access to new and promising treatments for people living with mental illness.
Please donate today and help our RPB Team reach our fundraising goal!
