calgary polo match for mental health

The Polo Match for Mental Health was a Huge Success!

On Saturday, July 20, 2019, Figure 8 hosted a fundraising event in support of the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation whose mission is to inspire our community to invest in excellence, in child health, research and family centred care.

Thanks to support from people like you, the Polo Match for Mental Health raised $170,000 for the new Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health!

This is an incredible feat and we are so grateful for this support, which will benefit thousands of young people and their families in our community.

The Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health will provide kids and teens with the right care, in the right place, at the right time. The centre will be a hub for innovative research that will generate new data that can be used to develop, test and refine new treatments. There is nothing quite like this facility in Canada and it's being built by generous people in the community. We're doing it. Together we are building this Centre. Together we will #BuildThemUp!
