In order to fulfill our mandate and vision in 2017, we need to raise 44.5% of our annual budget or $190,850.00 to cover our operational costs so that we can continue to provide affordable quality professional mental,physical,and spiritual health services. We expect the cost of fundraising to be $25,000.00
Throughout the year we solicit support from local churches, businesses, and individuals.
Also, Crossroads hosts a “Where Everyone Matters” Fundraising Dinner (October/November) and a “Reaching Beyond Your Limit” Spring Fundraising Event (May). The funds we raise from both these events allow us to provide subsidized professional mental health & physical health services to those who have insufficient financial resources to cover the cost of help. Clients are not turned away if they cannot manage the fees, rather they are invited to apply for a subsidy to decrease the fees to a manageable amount.
However, your financial help is welcome year round. You can donate at our office or through CanadaHelps at www.canadahelps.org.
SPRING FUNDRAISING EVENT
REACHING BEYOND YOUR LIMITS
THURSDAY, 7 PM, MAY 4, 2017 @ HOLIDAY INN LETHBRIDGE
It will be an evening filled with inspirational/ motivational speakers, delectable desserts, and an opportunity to help us raise $10,000 or more
To help us capture the realization of our fullest potential we have invited some local folks to share their personal stories of struggle and triumph. We have….
Trevor Stuart: By day Trevor is a mild mannered realtor with Royal LePage South Country. However, when he is not leaping from house to house he can be found training for his next expedition. On May 2016, Trevor Stuart successfully reached the summit of Mt. Everest, in an effort to end family violence by raising awareness and donating funds to YWCA Lethbridge and District. Trevor, having been raised in a violent home personally knows the struggles and hard work that is required to overcome and rise above. Trevor`s passion is to truly inspire people, and to support people to get over their past and create a new beginning.
Lowell & Julie Taylor: Julie are an enthusiastic and dynamic couple who persevere through obstacles every day. Lowell suffers from Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and is legally blind. In 2016 Lowell and Julie participated in the Amazing Race Canada (a grueling race across Canada and the world) and placed 4th. Lowell is currently training for Para-Triathlon and Para-Cycling (road & track) events with a dream to compete in the Paralympic Games. Julie has been by Lowell’s side every step of the way as he faces challenges to his independence. And Lowell’s emotional/mental strength and unending patience, along with their unwavering faith has been their stronghold.
