Hacksaw’s $100,000 Crusade For Youth Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Hacksaw’s $100,000 Crusade For Youth Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

About This Campaign

In 2017 for my 80th birthday I am running the Mississauga ½ marathon (21 km) to raise $100,000 for CameronHelps “Team Unbreakable” program.

Why am I asking for your support?

In Canada, suicide is the second leading cause of death for those aged 15-24. Suicide is usually preventable with 90% stemming from treatable mental illnesses. It is among the most poorly funded and resourced areas of health care. Each suicide or attempted suicide has a huge impact on family and friends and the community at large.

Achieving this goal would allow CameronHelps to reach an additional 30-40 schools and affect 2000 youth directly and thousands more indirectly. The long term effect of this would be incredible and would make a significant difference to the future lives of many.

Please help me reach this goal

Campaign to Support CameronHelps

CameronHelps aims to prevent teen suicide through awareness, reducing stigma and promoting wellness. 

Team Unbreakable, our flagship program, is a recreational run program that promotes better youth mental health through exercise and education.  We team up with schools (as a recreational program available to all) and in several hospitals community health agencies and family health teams (as a run therapy program).   The school program is endorsed by several school boards and has over 1000 students participating every term.   It is supported by a curriculum, materials, and workshops.  

Feel free to contact us for more information or to find out if there is a Team Unbreakable near you!
