The Mohawk Cross Country team is holding a fundraiser to support CAMH, Canada's leading mental health hospital.
For every $5 donated the Mohawk XC team will do 1 rep of the Chedoke Stairs in Hamilton (289 steps). For every $200 donated our Athletic Director Matt Ferreira will do 1 rep of the stairs too!
Mental Health is more prevelant than ever with the COVID-19 pandemic. Student athletes everywhere have had to struggle in isolation without in-person learning, and struggle as part of their identity has been stripped away without competitions.
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.
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.
Please donate today and help us reach our fundraising goal.
Together, we can give people hope for a better tomorrow.
