Mind on Health Challenge

Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

Ambassadors of the Douglas Foundation are proud to announce the official launch of the Mind on Health Challenge fundraising campaign, an event that will take place on October 9 and 10 for World Mental Health Day.

The group of volunteers hopes to raise $50 000 to support mental health research, patient care and treatment programs at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, the largest mental health research and care center in Quebec.

Inspired by the theme of “climbing your peak for mental health”, the virtual sports challenge invites donors to register individually or to form a team to take up their challenge during Thanksgiving weekend, including the possibility of climbing the summits of participating ski resorts. Two mountains have confirmed their participation in the initiative as of today, Bromont, montagne d’expériences and Mont Sutton.
