Did you know that 49% of Canadians feel they’ve suffered from anxiety or depression but have never sought help?
Two thousand runners and walkers stepped up May 11, 2019, as part of the inaugural Step Up for Mental Health 5K/10K in Saskatoon. Their efforts helped raise $400,000 for mental health projects and programming. Every dollar from registration fees, plus a matching amount from Cameco, supports the Cameco Fund for Mental Health. All funds raised will be disbursed to organizations undertaking projects that promote or protect 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.
