Hello to all our past supporters of the MHAS Fun Run!
We have some exciting news to share with you! We are pleased to announce that Cameco Corp. has made a multi-year commitment to “Step Up” for Mental Health and Addictions. As part of their commitment they are organizing their first “Step Up for Mental Health” run/walk event scheduled for Saturday May 11th, 2019. This will wrap up an exciting week of activities for Mental Health Awareness Week. In light of this enormous initiative, we not be holding our MHAS Fun Run and will be working in partnership with Cameco to replicate our success over the years and ensure we involve all past participants.
The “Step Up”initiative is offering a 5K and 10K course through Saskatoon’s scenic riverside complete with live bands, a fun-filled atmosphere and a post-run concert at the Delta Bessborough gardens! The best part - every dollar of your entry fee PLUS a matching amount from Cameco, will fund local mental health projects. Every dollar of your entry fee, with the matching amount from Cameco, supports the Cameco Fund for Mental Health established through the Saskatoon Community Foundation. These funds will be disbursed annually to organizations undertaking charitable projects that promote or protect mental health.
"Step Up for Mental Health", powered by Cameco in partnership with Brainsport, the Saskatoon Community Foundation and the Saskatchewan Health Authority, invites you to make a difference for mental health in Saskatoon and area. We hope that you will support this event either by registering or volunteering and continue to help fight the stigma surrounding mental health and addictions! Please share this with your family and friends and encourage them to come out with you!

Thank you once again for your past support of the MHAS Fun Run; we look forward to seeing you at
“Step up for Mental Health” on May 11th!
