On Saturday, June 8, kicking off the 3rd annual MM27 Road Hockey Tournament, Garrett McFadden and McFadden’s Movement donated a grand total of $20,000 to mental health resources WES For Youth Online and the Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo-Wellington branch for the second straight year.
Since the start of the Movement in September 2016, McFadden has donated a grand total of $46,000, starting with a $3,000 donation each to conclude the 2016-17 hockey season, followed by a $10,000 cheque the last two years to both WES For Youth Online — a free youth online counselling service created in memory of Wes Cameron (a close family friend of McFadden’s lost to suicide) — and CMHA Waterloo-Wellington, a way for McFadden to give back to the city of Guelph.
The Movement was proud to welcome Wes’ mom and WES For Youth Online co-founder Yolanda Cameron, and CMHA Waterloo-Wellington acting Executive Director Helen Fishburn to receive the donations.
McFadden’s Movement would also like to extend a big and gracious thank-you to everyone who made this incredible donation for mental health resources possible.
