Funds Raised Will Be Donated to the Suicide Prevention Community Council

The money raised this year will be supporting the Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton, focusing of education, training, community awareness, stigma reduction and advocacy.

Targeted areas include:
1. Education: evidence-based educational programs will be organized for community participants interested in being able to engage in meaningful prevention activities.
2. Student Engagement: the SPCCH has introduced a collaborative program working with the mental health leads of both public and catholic school boards to provide student-led, teacher facilitated mental health grants. These grants funds student initiatives to promote mental health awareness, reduce stigma, and foster help seeking behaviour. This culminates in an annual conference where students share their projects and outcomes achieved.
3. Peer Support: funds raised will be used to help support families either touched by suicide or concerned about friends or family members through the creation of a peer support program.

My Message

Hi friends! On September 29th, Curtis and I (along with many family and friends) will be participating in the Running for Rachael run in honour of a very special someone who lost his life to suicide.

We would appreciate your support, in any shape or form, in repping such an important cause that truly affects so many of us.

Running for Rachael continues to support mental health awareness programs for youth, stigma reduction and fosters help seeking behaviour. The funds raised will be used to support school grants for student led and teacher facilitated mental health projects. Over the past 5 years, they have reached 18,000 students in their schools.

We appreciate your consideration. <3
