Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our first Saskatoon Virtual Run for Women brought to you by the LOVE YOU <3 Shoppers Drug Mart program! Together, we raised more than $60,000 for programs in Saskatoon supporting women and their families as they work through mental health challenges.
Thank you for your generous donations, your encouragement, and your caring spirit. This was a heart-felt event that was good for all of us in so many different ways. And the results … well let’s just say our hearts have been warmed.
You have been part of a community-wide effort to raise awareness of the negative impact this pandemic has had on everyone – particularly women – in our community — our family, our friends, our neighbours, ourselves. Thank you for giving from your hearts.
The past few months have been a confusing and anxious time for all of us! What is happening? What is still coming? When will I feel “normal” again? Luckily, most of us have friends and family who are with us to help keep us grounded and safe. Luckily, most of us have the resources to weather this storm. Luckily, most of us know that this too shall pass some day.
Unfortunately, many do not have this same kind of reassuring support, and many suffer in silence, feeling so alone in their social and physical isolation from others. Or worse – being fearful with no safe place to go!
Thank goodness for people like you who understand the importance of taking care of people when they re vulnerable and in need.
Your kind donations are making a difference in the lives of women bravely facing mental health challenges every day. Funds raised through this initiative will be put to work ensuring CMHA Saskatoon can provide immediate and direct support for women and their families in need during this challenging time and into the future.
Thank you for supporting CMHA Saskatoon and women’s mental health programs in our community.
Together we’re UNSTOPPABLE!
