**Breaking news** Local resident Angela Baldwin has offered to match any gift made to Zach Makes Tracks between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15, up to $10,000! Help Zach reach his $100,000 goal to support the future Child and Youth Mental Health inpatient unit and program at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre. Please donate today.

He did it! On August 13th, 2017, Zach set out on his journey from RVH in Barrie. He had dreamed of running, walking, biking and scootering all the way to Ottawa to raise money for the kids in our community. Zach arrived in Ottawa on Sunday, September 10th, 2017 to a giant crowd of cheers. We have many stories to tell you about his journey, including meeting our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau! Please be patient as we update the website. Visit Zach’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages to see pictures and stories of him meeting with youth at their schools, attending events all summer long and visiting Parliament Hill.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for our youth in Muskoka. 1.2 million Canadian children and youth are affected by mental illness – yet less than one-quarter of them are getting help. Intervention and help during childhood increases the likelihood of success dramatically. Lack of support for mental illness and its tragic consequences, such as suicide, should be one of our biggest concerns TODAY. Let’s get our children the help they NEED.
