As Kiwanians, we are especially concerned about children. The global pandemic has affected countless young people in profound ways as they have been unable to socialize consistently, or at all, in schools. This in turn has affected whole families, especially the 1-in-4 of them already suffering from the impact of mental illness of a loved one.
May is Mental Health Month, so what better thing to do than enjoy fellowship in the blooming Spring, exercise our bodies and minds, and reflect together on the challenges we all face every day. It is through our connections with others that we gain strength to bear our individual loads.
We are really looking forward to our HIKE for Mental Health and supporting this critical cause. Please consider making a donation, leaving us a message, or sharing this page. Or all of the above. Thank you!
