Happening This Friday – 100 Men YEG


May 2, 2018

100 Men YEG recognizes that Mental Health Affects us all. One in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime.  The Stigma around this illness is the number one reason why two-thirds of those living with a mental illness do not seek help. 40% of parents would not admit to anyone – not even their Doctor, that they had a child with a mental illness.

Through story and song, CRESCENDO ignites passion for the Edmonton community, including stories from prominent community members about how mental illness has touched their lives. It’s a night of endless entertainment and unparalleled emotion.

Come together to support breaking down stigmas surrounding mental health with the help of music. All of the proceeds from this incredible night go towards supporting the John Cameron Changing Lives Foundation to enhance and maintain our region’s mental health programs, from adolescence to adulthood.

Tickets are available from $99 -$300 with charitable receipts issued.
