Mental Health in Motion is York Region’s largest fundraiser for youth mental health, raising urgently needed funds for CMHA’s Mobile Youth Walk-In Clinic (MOBYSS). MOBYSS offers youth (aged 12-25) a confidential and welcoming space to talk to a medical or mental health professional at no cost to the individual.
Each MOBYSS visit costs $250. Every $250 raised has the potential to ensure someone you know has access to support, which could make a difference in saving their life.
“Every year more than 2,500 youth ‘get on the bus with us’ for mental or physical health care. There’s no wait time, no cost, and no judgment,” says Catherine Matzig, our Senior Director of Philanthropy. “And so, on behalf of the thousands of young people whose names you will never know, but whose lives will be forever transformed by your generosity, thank you.”
Join us at Mental Health in Motion on Sunday, June 11, 2023, in support of youth mental health. You can walk (5 km), run (5 km or 10 km), cycle (25 km or 60 km) with community members from across York Region and South Simcoe at Ray Twinney Recreation Complex in Newmarket, or participate virtually anytime, anywhere before June 11, 2023.
Mental Health in Motion will kick off at 8:20 a.m. and lunch will be served starting at 11:30 a.m. Bring your friends, family, neighbours and let’s exceed our $130,000 fundraising goal for youth mental health!
