The pandemic has been at the forefront of everything that has happened during this past year, creating unprecedented levels of anxiety. We are writing to invite you to join us in reducing the havoc that the pandemic has created in people’s lives and minds. Since the pandemic began, the number of people with anxiety disorders has quadrupled. Anxiety disorders have become the number one mental health concern in the entire world, affecting people of all ages and backgrounds and many sectors, including businesses. 

ADAM has been working hard to help thousands of Manitobans with anxiety disorders on their journey to recovery through several virtual programs, including our Anxiety and Worry Support Program, peer support groups, telephone support line, and individualized peer support, as well as through informational presentations. However, we need your help in order to maintain our current services and introduce additional ones. 

We are inviting your support and involvement in a way that we think you will find hugely enjoyable. 

We are delighted to let you know about our upcoming fundraising event: “Crush Your Fears” – a skydiving event, scheduled for Saturday, July 24, 2021 (weather permitting). 

We very much need your help to make this fundraiser a success and ask that you consider participating, sponsoring a team, or donating. 

We know that there is a lot more to be done in the community to help people of all ages who are struggling with anxiety. With your help and support, we can continue to offer our current programs and services and hope to expand our programs to reach more people and to address specific anxiety-related situations, such as support for parents of children with anxiety, for family and friends of people with anxiety disorders, and for people in remote and rural areas. 

“If it wasn’t for ADAM, I don’t think I’d be alive today.” This statement was made recently by someone who has benefitted from ADAM’s services. From being unable to leave home due to incapacitating anxiety, this person is now productively employed, happily married, and living a rich and meaningful life. 

We would be very happy to have a discussion with you about this event. Please do not hesitate to contact us at adam@adam.mb.ca or at 204-925-0060. We invite you to visit our website at www.adam.mb.ca and our YouTube channel where you will find numerous informative videos about our organization and about anxiety disorders. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBywND3iGFQxu0YmJVPlz-A 

Together, we can make an important and essential difference to the lives of hundreds of Manitobans and contribute to recovery from the pandemic.  Please join us – we can’t do it without you!
