CMHA Saskatoon Branch was honoured to receive a donation of over $25,000 from Jade’s Ride for Mental Health yesterday. We cannot express the amount of gratitude we have for individuals such as Jade and her team. Without community involvement, CMHA would not be what it is. Thank you so much Jade, and everyone else who has been involved in this journey.
Jade’s Ride for Mental Health is a non-profit fundraising initiative dedicated to raising provincial awareness for mental health.

Jade Dulle is an active member of Saskatoon, enjoying canoeing, cycling, camping and performing in theatre and music. Jade is passionate about helping others and creating a positive impact within her community.
A few years ago, Jade experienced symptoms of a mental illness. After attempting to go through the mental health system, she received minimal help.
With an abundance of people going through the system themselves; there were long wait-lists and lacking resources.
Jade took her healing process upon herself by reading self-help books, exercising and using her community as an outlet.
A long healing process began; Jade now has a network of professionals giving her tools and skills to handle her symptoms. With experience and passion behind her, Jade would like to make a difference with “Jade’s Ride for Mental Health.”
CMHA Saskatoon Branch is very proud of Jade and her efforts to shine light on mental health in the province of Saskatchewan. We would like to thank Jade and her team for her donation and hard work!!
