The Prince Edward Island Marathon is Thrilled To Announce A New Partnership!
The Prince Edward Island Marathon (PEI Marathon) is thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Canadian Mental Health Association – PEI Division (CMHA-PEI) made possible by Murchison Foundation of Prince Edward Island. One of the key objectives set by the PEI Marathon in 2017 was to promote and support existing mental health programs. Consequently, this continuing partnership is a perfect opportunity to work together to achieve this important goal for both organizations.
The Canadian Mental Health Association, PEI Division, is a community-based organization that began its work on Prince Edward Island as a division of CMHA National in 1959. CMHA believes in mental health for all. Their mission is to promote the mental health of all Islanders by enabling individuals, groups and communities to increase their control over, and enhance, their mental health. To carry out this mission, they have approximately 150 volunteers and 50+ support staff who provide programs and services, education and information, research, advocacy and social policy development designed to help all Islanders improve their mental wellness.
CMHA-PEI offers programs and services throughout PEI. All money raised by, or donated to CMHA-PEI stays in the province in support of these programs and services.
