Did you know that 49% of Canadians feel they’ve suffered from anxiety or depression but have never sought help?
Established in 2019, Step Up for Mental Health is a Saskatoon-based run/walk to raise funds and awareness for mental health. Every dollar from registration fees, plus a matching amount from Cameco, supports the Cameco Fund for Mental Health. Step Up shifted to a virtual event in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but still attracted more than 3,500 registrants. All funds raised will be disbursed to Saskatchewan organizations undertaking projects that support mental health.
Step Up for Mental Health was established by Cameco in partnership with Brainsport, the Saskatoon Community Foundation and the Saskatchewan Health Authority. Applications for funding will be adjudicated by a panel that includes mental health professionals, as well as representatives from Cameco and Saskatoon Community Foundation.
The 2020 Granting Program will disburse more than $300,000.
