Help us reach our final $4000 goal!
Sixsense strategy group is #KeepingOurSensesHealthy and taking on 'The 4K Challenge' in support of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). 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? And yet many don't realize that, in its most severe forms, mental illness can be fatal.
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 we raise $500, each sixsense participant will complete 4000 steps/day for 1 week.
- $750 Jumping Jacks Challenge: When we raise $750, the sixsense team will collectively complete 4000 jumping jacks in 1 week.
- $1,000 Sit-up Challenge: When we raise $1000, the sixsense team will collectively complete 4000 sit-ups in 1 week.
- $4,000 Bonus Challenge: When we raise $4000, the sixsense team will complete an additional challenge!
Please donate today and help us reach our fundraising goals!
Raised funds will be directly donated to CAMH, Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital and one of the world’s leading research centres in its field. Money raised will be used for the most critical needs at CAMH, including COVID-19 response efforts, research, and treatments. This fundraiser will help close the gap between the burden of disease and the deficit in healthcare funding. For more information on how donations are used, visit: https://www.camh.ca/en/get-involved/putting-your-donations-to-work.
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.
Together, we can give people hope for a better tomorrow.
