Cameco Step up For Mental Health, Sat. May 11th

Our Community Partner, Cameco, is hosting the Step Up for Mental Health 5KM run/walk on Saturday, May 11, 2024! Join us at Victoria Park in Cobourg for a fun and inspirational event to raise funds for local mental health initiatives.

Registration is now open for $55 until April 20, and increases to $60 on April 21. Participants will receive a Step Up t-shirt, sweatshirt, drawstring bag and medal. Registration for students (ages 8-17) is $30 and includes a sweatshirt, drawstring bag and medal.

Participation is free for individuals who struggle with addictions and/or mental health issues – but registration is still required. A staff member/formal support person accompanying someone in this category can also sign up for free.

Every dollar of the entry fee, plus a matching amount from Cameco, supports the Cameco Fund for Mental Health (established through the Saskatoon Community Foundation). These funds are disbursed annually to organizations undertaking projects that promote or support mental health in Northumberland County and area.

For anyone unable to participate but still wanting to make a donation or pledge another participant, donation and pledge options are available on the registration page. Donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt from the Saskatoon Community Foundation.

We are also looking for volunteers between Thursday, May 9 – Saturday, May 11, to help with set-up and take-down, course marshalling, our expo and more. For more information or to volunteer:

Thanks to the support of the community, the Cameco Fund for Mental Health has distributed over $280,000 to local organizations since 2019.
