Dear Friends and Colleagues
Each year I aim to take part in a cycling challenge to raise funds for a good cause and 2023 is no different!
On Sunday 10 September I will be taking part in the NewRoads Lake Ride and cycling 125km to raise funds for The Mental Health Program at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket – my goal is to raise $1.000.
About the Program;
Southlake’s Mental Health Campaign, Better Begins Today, aims to build spaces that heal.
With the support of our caring and generous donors like the NewRoads Automotive Group and participants and supporters of the NewRoads LakeRide, we’ve raised $6.9 million to-date and have taken action to meet the growing demand for mental health care services. Your support helped open the doors to our new Emergent Mental Health Assessment Unit ensuring that those in crisis no longer share an Emergency Department with those suffering from physical illness and injury.
You are also supporting the construction of our new 12-bed Adult Inpatient Mental Health Unit. This Unit is designed to meet the specific needs of mental health patients by providing a welcoming and healing environment. These private rooms will bring the total number of beds to 36, which will enable us serve 400 more patients each year.
“The journey to better mental health needs more than medicine. Together, with generous community partners like the NewRoads LakeRide, we will give our loved ones in crisis a place where that journey begins. A place of peace, dignity and security, where they can receive care faster and get home sooner.”
So today, I'm asking for your support.
Please consider make a donation through my fundraising page link below to support my challenge and join me in the fight to save little lives. Every dollar, dinar, peso, dirham, euro, pound or rand will make a difference. A big thank you to those who have already donated!
