Did you know one in five youth cope with a mental health issue? Many of them don’t ask for help due to the stigma. Steps for Kids helps breakdown the stigma of mental illness, while encouraging young people to seek the help they need in leading healthy and productive lives.

Lutherwood Children’s Mental Health Centre on Benjamin Road in Waterloo is often the ‘last resort’ in treatment options for youth ages 12-18 who struggle with their mental health. Every child who comes to Lutherwood has a complex story. And every one of them needs a skilled team of professionals guiding them to overcome the challenges created by their serious mental health problems. 

Steps for Kids, a fun and inspirational 3k or 5k walk through the beautiful countryside of North Waterloo, is Lutherwood’s largest fundraising event and raises a significant portion of the revenue needed to deliver and grow critical mental health programs. 

Come enjoy family activies, live performances, snacks and refreshments as we raise awareness and fundraise to support children's mental health.

Everyone’s mental health matters! Every Step Counts!

Registration is free, but participants are encouraged to fundraise $100 to help us reach our fundraising goal of $120,000.
