Well dear readers it’s time for our annual fall fundraising to benefit our amazing Head & Hands Health Services: Street Work, Medical Services, and the Sense Project!
As you know (because you are a devoted and loving fan) for more than 20 years, the Farha Foundation held their annual event – Ça Marche – Montreal’s only major HIV/AIDS fundraiser, and we took part! This year, the foundation can’t run the event, leaving organizations an opportunity to come together to not only meet continued needs in our communities, but also work together in a celebration of progress as we look towards the future.
You: “Wait, wait, wait…so what’s happening?”
I’ll tell you! On October 2nd, 2016, we will be coming together with other incredible organizations for PARCours. This event is all about togetherness and helping one another in our diverse efforts for supporting HIV/AIDS communities!
The event will also be local to Head & Hands!!! We will be walking, dancing, rolling, moving, and celebrating in the streets around Parc Girouard in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, before a fun-filled (hopefully not too cold) park hang!
You: “This sounds so amazing I’m so hype and excited! How can I get involved?”
There are so many ways that you can support us! I’m so so happy that you want to, thank you so much in your interest!!
- You can support us by joining us on our journey. Do you want to join as an individual? Do you want to create a team and fundraise with your friends? YOU CAN DO BOTH OF THOSE THINGS!
- You can volunteer or come on the day to dance with us or eat!
- You can donate to an individual or to Head & Hands as a whole!
You: “So let’s say I decide to donate. What does my donation even do?”
Supporting PARCours means supporting Head & Hands’ amazing health services: the free medical clinic, our peer-based sex-ed Sense Project, and our Street Work Program! Last year, we raised $26,000 for our health services, and we can’t wait to reach even higher! We want to continue to meet youth where they’re at and give them the support that they need, but we can’t do it without the amazing relationships we build with our donors!
