Since my dad, Paul Woolford, passed away on October 31st, 2018, I've participated in the CN Tower climb annually and fundraised for numerous events on his behalf, raising more than $30,000. I have chosen to fundraise for CAMH, Canada's leading mental health hospital, this year.
On October 21st, I will begin a 15-day trek from Lukla to Mount Everest Base Camp: 130km roundtrip, sitting 5,364m above sea level.
Until two years ago, when I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I didn't recognize how prevalent the stigma surrounding mental illness still is. Fear, misunderstanding, and lack of proper education are the leading cause of this.
By sponsoring me—and supporting the ongoing work of the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health—you'll help create opportunities for research and treatment, while breaking the stigma that creates barriers between deeper connections. Every donation counts.
With your support, we can change how the world sees and treats mental illness. We can break down stigma and lead meaningful conversations about mental health and 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.
Please donate today.
