ALL expeditions are privately funded by the individuals themselves.
Completing this feat is not a common occurrence. Worldwide, a little more than 50 woman have ever completed the 7 Summits. It is a task that requires great physical endurance and drive, along with a mental affinity to experience new and exciting places and tasks.
Our current project is to raise $700,000.00 over the next two years. Funds will be donated to CAMH Foundation in direct support of the groundbreaking CAMH Urgent Drop-in Clinic. This clinic will dramatically improve access to timely care and support a wide range of people with mental illness, including depression and psychosis.The clinic will also lessen repeat emergency care visits by ensuring continuity of care and availability to anyone regardless of age, gender or diagnosis.“In short, the Urgent Drop-in Clinic will transform the experience of seeking care after a crisis.”, CAMH
CAMH states: “The next breakthrough in mental health will come from CAMH”.
We believe that as well.
CAMH is not only Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, it is also one of the world’s leading research centers for addiction and mental health. See our letter of support from CAMH.
Adventurous volunteers are climbing the Seven Summits to raise $700,000.00. All funds raised for this challenge will be directed to CAMH, as all costs related to the expeditions themselves are 100% privately funded!
Help us raise $700,000.00 over this two year campaign! Help us #endstigma.
All donations will receive a tax deductible receipt!

It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
