RECOVERY RUN
FOR YOUTH 2022

A series of runs and speaking engagements across
Hamilton and Brant has been completed. The work just continues.

The Recovery Run for Youth campaign will continue for three years to share the stories of lives lived and improved through mentorship. When the community comes together to support our youth, we have the power to create a better future.

RAISING HOPE IN YOUTH AT-RISK

During the pandemic, youth depression and suicide rates were increasing rapidly. Sadly, it wasn’t
very long before youth suicide attempts quadrupled and two of our own youth lost their lives.
We knew we had to act quickly to address the increased youth mental health crisis.

The Recovery Run For Youth will take place to raise hope, awareness and funding for our
COVID-19 Recovery plan for vulnerable youth, with a focus on Mental Health, Education and
Employment. The run will take place in Hamilton, Brantford, the County of Brant, and the Six
Nations of the Grand River communities & surrounding areas.
 

21 KILOMETRES
PER DAY

For 10 days, Executive Director

21 SPEAKING

$300,000
