An Event That Brings Awareness and Starts the Conversation About Mental Health

Paul Lafrance had an infectious laugh and a tender loving soul and passed away at the age of 44 after a long and courageous battle with mental health issues.

On August 8, 2015, Patrick Petrucka held a sand castle building contest in honour of his friend and to raise awareness about mental health issues. The proceeds from this event will be donated to MYS programs and will be used to provide services for the youth we serve who are affected by mental health.

Also, we were pleased to see that CTV News highlighted this event.
