We officially hit our first milestone! We have raised over $1,000!
Thank you to everyone who has supported us this far. There is about three weeks left and we are so excited for what is to come.
This past Tuesday, Drew Robinson, a former MLB player, suicide survivor, and mental health advocate, visited our campus. It was incredible to see him tell his story and to have an open conversation with him about mental health. Our campus Wellness Department created the event, and this exactly the kind of event that Active Minds is hoping to create with this fundraiser. We feel that it is very important for our organization to host an event like this to continue to create opportunities for our students to discuss mental health. The funds will help Active Minds pay for the travel expenses of our intended speaker as well as renting the event space. We will be able to create an open and inviting space for our students to have these important and necessary conversations, just as the Wellness Department did with Drew.
Thank you again for your support.
