Since 1985, the gala has had over 22,000 attendees and has raised over $25 million. Thanks to Toronto Businessman, philanthropist and CFPDP founder, Vim Kochhar, The Great Valentine Gala has become an annual tradition in celebrating the accomplishments and achievements of physically challenged Canadians everywhere.

This year, with approximately 500 guests in attendance, balloons will be sold at a value of $60 in the exciting Tombola raffle. Guests can purchase a balloon at the raffle where they gain a chance to win a mystery prize.

Walk for Change

 

On Saturday, May 11th LAMP Community Health Centre’s Walk for Change 5K Walkathon supported the 1 in 5 Canadians living with mental illness in your community.   The walk helped reduce the stigma of mental illness, and raised funds to benefit local mental health support programs, such as LAMP’s own Among Friends. This program provides social and recreation opportunities to individuals facing mental health challenges and helps them work toward recovery while promoting health, community, and respect.

The event began at LAMP Community Health Centre near Islington Ave & Lakeshore Blvd West, with Registration at 9am and the walk at 10am. Members of the community walked 5km through the Etobicoke-Lakeshore area, stopping first at the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital buildings, and continuing passed the Mastercard Centre on Kipling, towards the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital Cemetery on Evans.  Along the way, speakers brought the history to life while discussing the importance of community mental health services to those of us affected by mental illness.  All members of the public were welcome.
