RBC Race for Kids

"It is easier to build a boy than to mend a man" - Mahatma Ghandi

It is my pleasure to serve as a member of the Board of the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation.  During my tenure, while watching the amazing services provided daily by the Doctors, Nurses and Support Staff of the Alberta Children's Hospital I have become increasingly aware of the variety and scope of mental health challenges facing a significant portion of our child and adolescent population.

We understand an astonishing 70% of mental health issues begin in childhood or adolescence!  We are therefore very pleased, and grateful, that Calgary's first-ever RBC Run for the Kids is supporting Child and Youth Mental Health in our community.

I am fortunate to be joined in this event by my two happy and healthy grandchildren, and we will appreciate any support you may wish to share for this important cause.
