In February the Canadian Mental Health Association, Windsor-Essex County Branch (CMHA-WECB) launched the Sole Focus Project campaign. The Sole Focus Project is a proactive campaign to provide education, training and awareness to schools, workplaces and other vulnerable populations. Education and training are not areas currently funded by the government. As such, the Sole Focus Project campaign has a fundraising goal of $500,000 to be used to subsidize education and training and create an endowment that will create longevity and sustainability for this essential program.
I am proud to be one of the Sole Focus Project Ambassadors. As a way to show my sole, we are hosting a amazing event “Rock Your Sole” on Friday, October 27, 2017 at Water’s Edge. This promises to be a fun-filled party where we can all show our soles in support of this important campaign.
Please take a moment to review the Rock Your Sole sponsorship package. As a sponsor you will play a vital role in creating change for mental health and wellness in this community. Like any disease, early intervention can make a difference for those with mental illness.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to welcoming you to Rock Your Sole in October. With one in five Canadians dealing with a mental illness during their lifetime, it has never been more important to support CMHA-WECB. #showyoursole
