A visit to the hospital has never been this much fun!
Waypoint’s 4th annual Mental Health in Motion fundraiser


Get ready for the most fun you’ll ever have on a visit to the hospital! Mental Health in Motion is back, bigger and better than ever.

On September 22, spend your morning tackling the 5k run/walk, the 1k family run, explore your inner yogi or take on the challenge of the epic Adventure Park for kids ages 1 to 101!

Lead sponsor Midland Honda is excited to be co-hosting this annual event once again, encouraging families to have fun outdoors together and discover the grounds of Waypoint and Discovery Harbour like never before. 

“We’re thrilled to support this fundraiser,” says Richard Davies, Vice-President and General Manager at Midland Honda. “Waypoint not only does a lot of great things in this community but across the province as well to support the one in five people who experience mental health problems.”

The proceeds from the event this year will support the purchase of much needed hospital beds. 

“A good night’s sleep is important for everyone’s overall health, but especially people experiencing a mental illness,” says John Barrett-Hamilton, Waypoint Board Chair. “The patients we serve deserve the best possible care with the promise of hope, with your help, upgrading our beds is one way we can accomplish that.”

Bring your friends and family out for a day of awesome activities, including a new Pop Up Market this year, and support the people in your community faced with mental illness and the future of mental health care at your mental health hospital. REGISTER ONLINE
