let’s walk together to make our mental health a priority!
Did you know that one in every five young people experience mental health challenges? While some youth get effective treatment and are able to function well, far too many suffer alone.
Too often, people feel afraid to admit that they are struggling with their mental health. This fear of prejudice and judgment prevents people from getting help.
In the last few years we have come a long way and finally, mental health is becoming part of our conversations. But there is still work to be done.
Please join us on May 6th to help raise awareness of mental health so we can lift the stigma and lift lives.
Let’s walk together to help end the stigma and change the conversation on mental health for all.
Steps for Kids presented by RBC is a fun and inspirational 3K and 5K walk through the beautiful countryside of North Waterloo. It’s a terrific way to build community and enjoy a great experience outdoors while supporting an important cause: children’s mental health.
The Walk provides hope and reduces stigma for those youth who are struggling with mental health challenges, sending the message that we walk together to support them.
Steps for Kids is Lutherwood’s largest fundraising event and raises a significant portion of the revenue needed to deliver and grow critical mental health programs for youth with mental health challenges.
Come as an individual, join a team, bring your colleagues, or come with your family – we would love to see you.
The Walk includes fun activities, performers and snacks.
You are welcome to bring your dog on a leash.
