Mighty Moose Dragathon raising funds for EVSTF

It’s time for Fernie to talk about mental health.

Since January of 2020, the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force (EVSTF) has led the conversation about suicide awareness in the valley. They want to break down the stigma around suicide, open up conversations around the topic, and enforce the message that “It is OK to not be OK.”

Now is your opportunity to support a community that tackles the stigma and opens up a dialogue about mental health. You can help those in crisis by being a part of the conversation. Show your support on Wednesday, March 24, as Isabella GiaV, members of the Taskforce and six other Drag Queens, lap the Mighty Moose from 5 – 9 p.m.

Fernie’s most fabulous will ski/ride through the evening to raise awareness and funds for the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force. The funds raised will help the Task Force start a Grief Support Group for our community members affected by suicide.

Please Note: Due to COVID restrictions, this is a private fundraiser and the Mighty Moose is only open to members of the fundraiser that evening (no general public skiing will be allowed).

While the Drag Queens love the support, gathering on the Mighty Moose to cheer them on is not possible this year.

Please stay tuned to our social media for live updates throughout the night.  The best way to support this year is to share the fundraiser, donate to the cause if you able to, and most importantly, help us to spread awareness of the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force within our community and start conversations around the topic of suicide to help break the stigma.
