Help Kate raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

As a member of the Eli's Place Board, I am acutely aware of the need for a residential treatment centre for young adults with serious mental illness. I believe strongly in this model of care and know it will change lives. 

While the 10K walk I will complete on October 17, 2021 is not a difficult challenge, it serves as a reminder of the walk those with mental illness take every day as they engage in a world that is often not accommodating or supportive. 

Donations, whether large or small, will combine to get us across the finish line!


For the 160,000 young adults in Ontario grappling with serious mental illness, access to effective treatment is grossly inadequate. The cost in lives lived with debilitating challenges or lost to early death is far too great. The vision of Eli’s Place aims to bring hope. A first-of-its-kind in Canada, Eli’s Place is modelled after a leading rural, residential long-term treatment centre with proven success. Programs that incorporate therapeutic work, specialized care and skills training will offer a path to recovery for people in this underserved age group, giving them the tools to heal and move from simply surviving to living.
