What is Step Up for Mental Health?

Launched in early 2019, Cameco welcomed TSN Radio's Michael Landsberg to help announce its new community mental health project called Step Up For Mental Health.

“It can be difficult to talk about mental health and many suffer in silence,” says Cameco CEO Tim Gitzel, whose team established the event in 2019 in partnership with Brainsport, Saskatoon Community Foundation and Saskatchewan Health Authority. “In addition to raising funds, we hope that Step Up for Mental Health plays a role in promoting discussion and ending the stigma.”

You make a difference for mental health the moment you sign up!

With Step Up, you make a difference for mental health the moment you sign up because every dollar of your entry fee, plus a matching amount from Cameco, supports the Cameco Fund for Mental Health established through the Saskatoon Community Foundation. These funds will be disbursed annually to organizations undertaking charitable projects that promote or protect mental health.

To thank you for stepping up, we pledge to give you the best value with incredible swag including a custom Step Up medal for all finishers.
