Play 4 Sven Fundraiser Raises $4,250 for MDAM!
MDAM was so very gracious to be honoured to learn more about Ben, an amazing young man. Through an incredible, inspiring event in honour of this young man, “play4sven” the organizing team was so wonderful enough to donate $4,250.00 to Mood Disorders.
Thank you so much Byron Spriggs and to the grandmother of Ben, for inviting us to be a part of this special day. Ben’s story will live on. It is our pleasure to do our part in providing information on the correlation between concussions and mental health.
Through this event we have been inspired to help the sports community.
