This event has been created in memory of Alex McLaughlin; a benevolent person, an all around athlete from the community and varsity basketball player for Acadia University. Alex took his own life due to depression in April 2014.
Our goal is to increase mental health awareness, erase the stigma surrounding mental illness and maximize the amount of donations to mental health organizations.
Since 2016, we have donated $11,292.61 to the Student-Athlete Mental Health Initiative. We are grateful for your support in every form. By breaking the ice we can help fight the 2nd leading cause of death among young adults.
Your generous gift will help support people struggling with and erase the stigma surrounding mental illness
