Thank you for celebrating
the strength of the human spirit.

This year's Transforming Lives Awards was truly an evening of inspiration and hope. We celebrated five extraordinary individuals who face mental illness and addiction with dignity and perseverance. With the Harry & Shirley Young Corporate Award, we also honoured RBC for its generosity and commitment to improving mental health in Canada.

We heard personal stories of triumph and were motivated to become agents of social change. We marked 20 years of celebrating the strength of the human spirit. And we raised critical funds to help make the breakthroughs necessary to transform the lives of patients now and in the future. Thank you!
