“Tri for Health” Triathlon 2011
Sunday, August 28th
Whiteway’s Pond, Torbay, NL
Please contact Keith at email@example.com ASAP to sign up or get more info!!
We are looking for volunteers to assist in various ways for 3-4 hours on the morning of Sunday, August 28th. Come along by yourself, with a friend, or with your whole family to have some fun, and help out a great cause.
Tri for Health supports programs provided by the Waterford Hospital that encourage people who suffer from mental illness or addictions to get active by providing the right equipment, clothing and opportunities to participate in physical activity.
Our goal is to raise $30,000 to support a variety of initiatives to support mental health and addictions programs offered through inpatient and outpatient programs at the Waterford Hospital.
The Waterford Hospital has many needs and receives limited funding. Money raised during Tri for Health will be spent on recreation programs and exercise equipment for people with mental illness. Research shows that exercise has a profound effect on mood, anxiety, depression, and learning - all those variables that play into mental health.
