What an absolutely amazing day it was, bringing the community together to illuminate the importance of mental health in honour of our beloved Cameron. We express our deepest gratitude to everyone who contributed through donations, shared their support, and attended the event. A special thank you goes out to our incredible vendors who played a significant role in making the day truly special. Heartfelt appreciation extends to our generous sponsors, whose contributions made a substantial impact—visit this page for a comprehensive list of this year's sponsors.

Our players and coaches deserve a round of applause for delivering an exhilarating, competitive, and high-scoring game that culminated in a memorable shoot-out—THANK YOU! A heartfelt acknowledgment also goes to our dedicated volunteers, without whom this day would not have been possible—THANK YOU!

FC London, we are immensely grateful for your generosity in providing the field and supplies for the event—THANK YOU! Let this day stand as a testament to the love and support within our community, serving as a reminder to continue the conversation, knowing that you are never alone.

To all those who expressed a desire to participate this year, WE HEARD YOU, and we assure you that we will be back next year, bigger and better than ever.

Y(OUR) IMPACT

Our vision for the Kicks For Strength event was to create awareness, foster understanding, and dismantle the stigma surrounding mental illness in honor of our cherished Cameron. Our ambitious goal was to raise $20,000 to support innovation in mental health resources and initiatives.

Remarkably, we not only gathered over 400 community members on a beautiful day, united for a cause we are deeply passionate about, but as a community, we surpassed our goal by more than doubling it. The astounding amount of  $43,403.52 was presented to St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation in support of the MINDS program on Tuesday, October 10th.

We find ourselves in a state of disbelief at the overwhelming success of this event. Words cannot adequately express our gratitude to each and every one of you who played a role in making this event a triumph. Whether you purchased tickets, made donations, participated as a vendor, sponsor, player, volunteer, or showed support in any other way—you are the reason behind this incredible number.

Cameron would undoubtedly be immensely proud. 🤍
