Strike Out The Stigma

Oct 5, 4pm - Oct 6, 11pm

You Are Collective is proud to announce Strike Out The Stigma, a two-day slo pitch tournament on October 5+6th, 2019 at the East Kelowna Ball Diamonds as a kick-off to mental illness awareness week. Teams of charities will face off on the diamonds for a chance to win a grand prize donation provided by local sponsors to their organization. The tournament is a way for both community initiatives as well as the public to understand how mental health and stigma play a role in every aspect of our lives; and how there are resources around to help. We want to foster the community within the community. This weekend is about communication, awareness and breaking down barriers when it comes to stigmas.
From local vendors to food trucks to community resources and open conversations this tournament is all about community and sharing in the idea that you are not alone. Teams are invited to set up a booth to share their cause, tools, and ways to get involved for spectators and participants to enjoy. Public entry is donation-based and will be used to fund the winning prizes! If you're a charity, vendor, food truck, or sponsor wanting to get involved please visit www.strikeoutthestigma.ca to sign up or inquire about further info! It’s time to #strikeoutthestigma!

Currently donating proceeds from our apparel to Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna, we aim to create a world with no stigmas, and we plan to get there through awareness and sharing our lived experience. Through collaborations and projects within the community, we are working towards keeping the conversation going and providing more accessible and prevalent mental health care throughout our society.
