Last week, 27 members of Petley-Hare marched outside for an hour per day to promote health and wellness in our community, support local health care and raise funds for the Mental Health program at Lakeridge Health.
Although we came up shy of our $20,000 goal — the PH team, with the help of family, friends and insurance partners, were able to raise a total of $15,099.33 from 97 donations for Lakeridge Health and their Mental Health Program. A great outcome from what started out as a simple idea to honour all our incredible Hospital workers and bring about some positivity during these unprecedented times.
We can’t say thank you enough! To everyone involved, not only have you raised funds for Lakeridge Health, but the awareness you drive locally about getting out and being active, wellness and mental health is amazing and invaluable to the fundraiser, and hopefully will have inspired many around you.
Again, huge thanks to everyone involved! And if you wish to send in a last minute donation, our Challenge page is still up and running. 🙂
