Personal Appeal from CameronHelps founder David Harris

Dear Friend of CameronHelps:

As many of you know, the last two years have been an exciting period of growth and acceptance for CameronHelps and our Team Unbreakable (TU) Running Program in many high schools.  Thousands of youth have participated in the weekly runs, heard our inspiring messages in their school assembly presentations, or simply engaged us in a conversation about teen suicide, mental health, and what they can do.

Our two year Trillium Foundation grant has ended.  That grant enabled us to create and deliver the school program.  Plus, the TU program is GROWING.  We’re having another great year in Peel Region schools, AND we’re in Halton Region schools now too.  There is interest in Toronto, Niagara, York, and Durham.  We’re thrilled, but we can’t afford it!  Schools and school boards have no “extra” money for mental health and physical health programs, so WE must pull the funding together needed to deliver our TU programs.

YOU can help.  A tax-deductable donation will enable us to keep the Team Unbreakable Running Program going.  If it wasn’t serious, I wouldn’t be asking.   CameronHelps has no administrative overhead, which means 100% of your donation goes toward building and delivering our program.   We are also looking to build our volunteer base; expand our fundraising capacity through grants, events and by other means; and, establish partnerships for the continued growth and delivery of the programs.  But money is needed now, or our program WON’T be possible.

Three options!:

a)         ADOPT A SCHOOL.  For $2800, you will cover our costs for the program at one of our schools.  Any individual or company/organization adopting a school will be acknowledged as an “UNBREAKABLE Patron” on the Team Unbreakable and CameronHelps web sites – and lots more.  Go to www.cameronhelps.ca, click DONATE and indicate you would like to Adopt a School in the comments.  And we’ll be in touch!

b)        REGISTER TO RUN or SPONSOR.  The Bold and Cold events are coming soon.  Register to run the 5K or sponsor a runner at www.boldandcold5k.ca!  These are the culmination events for our school programs in Peel and Halton – so it’ll be a lot of fun!

c)         Simply DONATE.  Any amount is tax deductable.  www.cameronhelps.ca and click DONATE.

Please consider CameronHelps in your charitable giving this year and help build a positive culture of “physical health for mental health” in schools.  TU is a proven, positive program.  Let’s keep it going and growing!

Thank you! and sincerely,

David Harris
