Crushing It For C.A.N.D.Y

The Team Name "Crushing it for C.A.N.D.Y. is a take on the popular game, “Candy Crush” and the term, “Crushing it”, which is often used to describe when someone is doing something with great success. 

Anyone who experienced death when they were young (most of us) and didn’t experience the support they needed to help them understand and deal with what they were feeling, understands why it’s important that adults learn how to talk with kids about dying, death, and grief. If you believe that young people need now, more than ever, to have a place where they can speak openly about their fears, questions, and emotions around dying, death, and grief, you’re a C.A.N.D.Y. Crusher! 

Fundraising and walking as a ​​Team is a great way to connect with others who also feel strongly about improving access to compassionate end-of-life care in your community.  By walking and raising money for C.A.N.D.Y. Cafe, you are helping to: 

  • Bring the program education and training to communities throughout Southern Ontario 

  • Train adults who already work with young people to be able to provide support and compassion around dying, death, and grief, an often-over-looked mental health need 

  • Provide young people with a memorable, engaging “Real Talk” experience that appeals to all their senses! Tangible activity and take-home materials, delicious and aromatic food and beverages, auditory and visual experiences to help them process their thoughts and feelings, and a welcoming, comfortable, warm environment where they feel safe to share 

 

So get your friends, family and co-workers together to Crush it for C.A.N.D.Y! You can also invite people to participate virtually - anyone, anywhere can join your team even if they can’t physically be there for the walk.
