Supporting Mental Health Home & Away

The RPB Charity and Community Team had created a new campaign to bring awareness to mental health and wellness. The initiative combined a campaign of fundraising through online donations and raffle prize draws, posting RPB-centric awareness content and concluded with a 5k run.

The campaign kick off brought awareness to World Suicide Prevention Day on Tuesday, September 10. Over the subsequent weeks, a series of quotes were posted to Red Patch Boys social media platforms from TFC Alumni and RPB members. The campaign ended unofficially on World Mental Health Day, Thursday, October 10 but continued to raise funds for the Charity Challenge RPB team in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (5K Division) on Sunday, October 20.

This year’s campaign ended with just over $1,200 in donations to CAMH – The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. Thanks to all for helping the cause. We look forward to next year’s campaign.
