CYHC Run For Youth
May 2, 2020
The Chilliwack Youth Health Centre held its very first Fundraiser Run Event in 2018 from Chilliwack Senior Secondary School. This run included a 1km fun run for children and a 5km run/walk for others. Our goal for this event is to promote physical health as this benefits mental health while also raising awareness for the Centre and our Youth.
This event is put on solely by volunteers allowing 100% of the proceeds to go back to the centre. In 2018 our goal was to raise enough funds to acquire necessary resources to enhance continuity of care between sites with online charting, which allows the centre to collect assessment information from youth directly in a method that is more comfortable for them and more private. With this, we raised over $8,000 for this cause.
This year, for 2020 our goal is to raise funds to support an outreach program, the Youth Activity and Resiliency Development Program, also known as the YARD which is run through the Centre. This program provides a safe space for youth during the summer when they do not have the consistency and safety of being in school.
This event has also been known for its amazing draw prizes! Prizes have ranged from water bottles, to gift cards, to hotel getaways.
Come join the fun on Saturday May 2, 2020!
