Music March for Music Therapy - Sunday March 26th
CANADIAN MUSIC THERAPY FUND
Music March for Music Therapy is a fundraiser happening in downtown Toronto on Sunday March 26th, 2017.
Across the nation, the family-focused March will bring communities together to generate funds and awareness to the powerful role of music therapy in the health and well-being of Canadians. Last year, over $25,000 was raised and all proceeds helped make music therapy accessible to more Canadians. Funds raised supported programming for patients in palliative care and for seniors in long-term care facilities. To learn more, visit musictherapytrust.ca.
This year our goal is to raise $40,000.
“Music is therapeutic. Most people understand and experience that frequently. However, for many people, the value of working with a certified music therapist is the difference between living fully or not. Susan comes to the Music Therapy Centre in Toronto to work on goals related to speech, movement, and mental health. She lives with Parkinson’s disease and through group music therapy sessions she is speaking more clearly, walking and moving with more confidence and expressing her feelings rather than keep them to herself. It is usually those who cannot access music therapy services that could benefit from them the most. More funding is needed for the Music Therapy Trust to continue their mission of making music therapy accessible for all Canadians.” Chrissy Pearson, RP, MTA, FAMI
