20 Apr Tee off 4 Taylor Golf Tournament
thank you to everyone who supported and made this event happen.
Over $5000 was raised!
On July 12th 2017, with great sadness, we said goodbye to our dear friend Taylor who lost her battle with depression. We want to celebrate Taylor’s life and raise funds and awareness in support of youth mental health issues in our local area.
Many young people struggle with mental illness and, more often than not, families and friends close to them are unaware of their internal struggles. In Simcoe County alone, as many as 16,000 young individuals will experience mental health related issues. Since 2007, the number of days that both children and youth have spent inside the Region’s hospitals, suffering from mental illness, has TRIPLED.
Our golf tournament fundraiser is called Tee Off 4 Taylor, and we will be creating a custom bench in Taylor’s honour to be placed in the City of Barrie. 100% of the rest of the profits raised will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association here in Barrie. Specifically to help build a new centre where youth can go for immediate help.
Mental illness does not take a break, nor shall we. We are here in support of raising awareness and support for mental health issues and will rally together in Taylor’s memory.
thank you to everyone who made this day unforgettable
