Join us Saturday, June 15, 2019, for the second annual March For Mental Health and Homelessness which aims to bring awareness to both issues and offer a “hand up” to those who are struggling with them.
Sign in will begin at 9 a.m. at Zwicks Centennial Park – Hill Picnic Site #4 in Belleville, with the walk/run starting at 10 a.m. at the Zwicks trail by the James Moore Dog Park. Continue to the Parrot Riverfront Trail which will take you behind the stores of our beautiful downtown Belleville and up to the Grace Inn Homeless shelter on 315 Church Street. There, you will find a refreshment/rest stop and you may check out the future site of the shelter. This is the 2.5km walk. If you choose, you can end there, or continue back the same way to Zwicks for the 5km run/walk.
80% of the profits raised will go to Grace Inn Homeless Shelter and 20% will go to the Ontario Association for Suicide Prevention.
There will be a celebration BBQ starting at 11:30 a.m. (at Zwicks Centennial Park – Hill Picnic Site #4) free of charge for all participants, and draws for amazing prizes (including a gift basket for the participant who raises the most funds!).
Registration is available online now. Registration fee for all participants is $20 which includes a t-shirt, BBQ lunch and chance to win prizes! Sign up as an individual or as a team (more fun!). Our goal is to raise $20,000, so if 100 participants raise $200 each, we can achieve this! We raised $18,500 last year!! You must sign up online before June 1 to ensure you get your t-shirt and get your personal sponsorship page to raise funds for our cause! Register Now.
Tax receipts will be issued for all donations of $20 or more. You must provide a mailing address as well as an email address in order to receive a receipt.
