Your donations in action - Get Your Mental Health in Motion and Helicopter Golf Ball Drop Raffle smashing successes


Get Your Mental Health in Motion 

Sports Court refinished

Your contributions to the May 2022 Get Your Mental Health in Motion fundraiser made this happen! With nearly $23,000 raised, the newly resurfaced sports court now offers a more extensive outdoor experience with options for tennis, pickle ball, basketball, and shuffleboard.

One of Waypoint’s signature events, the fundraiser featured wellness, mindfulness, music and physical activities for the whole family and a Choose Your Own Adventure virtual 5k.

Recreation and leisure are essential tools when it comes to fostering positive mental health. Your donations are helping to build skills, boost energy levels, enhance quality of life and quality sleep, and strengthening social connections through physical activity. 

Helicopter Golf Ball Drop Raffle

Helicopter Golf Ball Drop Raffle
The September Helicopter Golf Ball Drop and Family and Friends Charity Golf Tournament supporting Waypoint and Hospice Huronia on September 10, 2022 went off with a bang!

Hosted by Family and Friends, the gorgeous sunny day kicked off with dozens of golf teams teeing off in a shotgun start, and ended with more than 9,000 golf balls being dropped from a helicopter in the sky onto the course at the Midland Golf and Country Club. 

The balls landing closest to the flags determined who went home with big prizes! With three early bird draws and the main event, 28 lucky people walked away winners while also supporting two deserving charities.

Our many thanks to our lead organizer and volunteer Gerard LaChapelle and his volunteer team, staff and volunteers from Hospice and Waypoint, the many sponsors, donors and golf ball purchasers, and everyone who came out to support both of these incredible events.
