On October 1 we are hosting the 1st Annual Brian Dudgeon Open at Royal Woodbine Golf Course in support of CAMH, Canada's leading mental health hospital.
My dad, Brian Dudgeon, would organize a golf tournament every year with his life-long friends where people would come from all over the country to have a fun day on the course. When I was old enough to participate, I absolutely loved it. It was an opportunity to play golf, hang out with my dad, and witness how time nor distance could seperate true friends. So, in keeping with this tradition, we're excited to start this tournament again in loving memory of my dad.
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. We can't thank you enough for your support.
