The 1st Annual Memorial Basketball Tournament of Hope In Honour of the Late Kaitlyn Roth
It was an inspiring weekend at the 1st Annual Memorial Basketball Tournament of Hope In Honour of the Late Kaitlyn Roth.
Kaitlyn’s legacy is about creating hope and compassion for mental health services for adults aged 18 and older. The tournament message: “Tomorrow Needs You” is a great reminder for people struggling in our community.
Thank you to everyone involved with the tournament and special thanks to Kaitlyn’s family for bringing the community together to destigmatize mental health conversations and pursuing a promising tomorrow for everyone.
Carizon's Family Night at the Movies (2022)
What an incredible day at Carizon’s Family Night at the Movies. Thank you for joining the event. We hope that those who attended walked away feeling inspired by the commitment of this community to support the mental health and wellbeing of families.
The weather was a bit chilly, but spirits were high. Disney’s “Encanto” was the perfect movie to remind us of the importance of family and how we all have our own special talents and don’t need magical powers to fit in.
