The Mind on Health Challenge raises $99,760

The 3rd edition of the Mind on Health Challenge raised $99,760 to support mental health research and care at the Douglas Institute.

This resounding success would not have been possible without the continued efforts of Marie-Hélène Thibeault, ambassador of the Douglas Foundation and the event’s organizing committee. “Again this year, we have come together on World Mental Health Day to take the cause to new a new peak and the results are breathtaking! The inspiring mobilization across Quebec bears witness to the crying needs for mental health research and care,” she said.

We would also like to note the extraordinary commitment of several students from the City of Granby who took up a major challenge: climb four mountains in the Eastern Townships in a single day to raise awareness on mental health issues amongst young people.

The Douglas Foundation team would like to thank the volunteer of the organizing committee, donors, sponsors and all the participants for their commitment to the cause of mental health. Thanks to you, we are able to build hope for all those whose lives have been affected by mental illness.

The Mind on Health Challenge is an individual or team-based sports challenge to raise funds for the Douglas Foundation. For more information about this event, click here.

Thank you and see you next year,
The Douglas Foundation’s team
