Mental Health Matters Awareness Walk & Fundraiser

The Libbie Young Centre hosted the first annual Mental Health Matters Awareness Walk & Fundraiser. This year our staff members Mallory Smith and Christie Wolanuk walked over 270kms from Saskatoon to Lloydminster from September 10th – September 16th 2021.

We are elated to say that this year we raised over $30, 000.00!

The money raised the is going towards helping Lloydminster and surrounding communities through funding a new position for a Community Outreach Support Worker. The new position will be implemented in the spring of 2022.

We are so grateful to our sponsors and the community who helped make the fundraiser a huge success. Thank you to everyone who donated, honked or cheered us along the highway, and who sent messages of encouragement and support. We are stronger together.

We look forward to planning next year’s fundraiser.
