The Jewish General Hospital Foundation and the Jewish General Hospital Auxiliary are pleased to present the 3rd Edition of the CIBC MINDSTRONG Fitness Event. The event will take place on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at Midtown Sanctuaire in Honour of Maria and Vincenzo Guzzo from Cinémas Guzzo. The proceeds from the event will support the renovation and the relocation of the psychiatry inpatient care unit as well as sustain many crucial mental health programs which help thousands of patients every year. CIBC MINDSTRONG is once again Co-Chaired by Jodi Mintz and Stacey Herman Serero alongside Tony Marinaro from TSN690, Honourary Chair.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, the 2nd Annual CIBC MINDSTRONG, which took place on Sunday, May 15, 2016, raised $740,000 net with a fundraising cost ratio of less than 5%, which makes for one of the most cost-efficient fundraising events to be held in Montreal. No other event in Quebec has raised awareness and resources for mental health on this scale. Proceeds from the CIBC MINDSTRONG 2015 and 2016 benefited the expansion of mental health programs for young people aged between 15 and 25 at the Department of Psychiatry of the JGH, led by Dr. Karl Looper.

The 3rd edition of this unique event will unite over 300 participants on May 7th for a dynamic and special fitness fundraising extravaganza. The day-long affair will be complete with prizes, sports celebrities, inspiring testimonials, healthy snacks, refreshments, fitness sessions delivered by top professionals, and so much more. Our fundraising goal for this year is to surpass the successful amount we raised in 2016.

Participants are required to register and raise a minimum of $500 in order to participate on May 7, 2017. It is possible to form your own team and each team member may choose to help other participants to reach their goal. Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are also available.
