Move-it for Young Minds - Summer 2017
Sat, 26 August 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Move-it for Young Minds (MFYM) is a charity event in support of children and youth who are living with mental health challenges. Right now, an estimated 1.2 million Canadian children and youth are affected by mental illness, but less than 20 per cent will receive appropriate treatment (Mental Health Commission of Canada). The Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH), is taking action and plans to open up a child and youth mental health unit by the end of 2017. This goal requires a lot of funding, commitment, and collaboration. MFYM is raising money to help get the doors open sooner than later.
The MFYM event taking place in Barrie Ontario on August 26th from 9-12pm. Participants walk a 5km migration along the lake shore trails and participate in various fitness challenge stations. People of all ages are invited to join this very important cause. Our goal is to have a minimum of 200 participants and to raise over $15,000.00 with 100% of the profits going to RVH.
Tickets are $20 and this includes all event activities as well as a ballot for one of our door prizes.
Kids 12 and under are FREE!
