Mental Health in Motion welcomes the whole family Sept. 21 - kids 12 & under FREE!

Mental Health in Motion is back and better than ever
Mental Health in Motion
John Weekes, Kristi Lalonde, Diane Desroches and Kate Petrossie,
members of the Mental Health in Motion organizing committee
invite you to join them on Sept. 21 at Harbourside Park Midland 
in a brand new location on Midland’s waterfront. 

Come out on September 21 for a morning of fun, activity and camaraderie, and support your mental health hospital. The event features a 5 km run or walk, an early bird yoga class, amazing wellness stations along the route, a silent auction, door prizes and more!

Lead sponsor Midland Honda is back on board co-hosting this annual event, encouraging you to bring your families and have fun outdoors together. 

Waypoint Board Chair John Barrett-Hamilton shares “Fundraising at our hospital is dependent on the generosity of our community and those who are making mental health a priority. We’re thrilled to have the continued support of organizations like Midland Honda who believe in Waypoint and the patients and clients we serve.”

Proceeds from the event will go towards the purchase of much needed hospital beds. 

“A good night’s sleep is important for everyone’s overall health, but especially people experiencing a mental illness,” says Barrett-Hamilton. “The patients and clients we serve deserve the best possible care with the promise of hope, with your help, upgrading our beds is one way we can accomplish that.”

Bring your friends and family out for a day of awesome activities and support the people in your community faced with mental illness and the future of mental health care at your mental health hospital. The cost is only $25 a person or $60 for a family of 4. Children 12 & under are free.
