The eighth annual Home Trust Tom Trenouth Charity Golf Tournament is taking place on Wednesday, September 16th 2020. The tournament will honour the memory of Tom Trenouth who was a valued Home Trust employee. Tom’s family, along with Home Trust have chosen to donate the proceeds of this tournament to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
Mental health is one of the most important causes of our time. The past few months of pandemic, isolation and uncertainty have shown us that prioritizing mental health may be the cause of our time. In a normal year, one in five Canadians will experience a mental illness. But five in five—that’s every single one of us—has mental health. And we all deserve to feel well. Isolation and physical distancing not only negatively impact our mental health, they make it much harder to access and connect to our communities for the support we all need.
Founded in 1918, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is one of Canada’s oldest not-for-profit organizations. With more than 10,000 staff and volunteers in hundreds of communities across Canada, CMHA provides vital services and support to well over half a million Canadians every year. Your donations support CMHA’s mental health programs. They’re needed now more than ever not only to keep existing supports available, but also to respond to rising demand and the anticipated ‘echo pandemic’ of mental health issues caused by COVID-19, self-isolation and economic uncertainty.
Tom was well known and highly regarded in the industry. He loved to laugh, was dedicated to his job, and above all loved his family and friends. Tom was a natural role model and always made people feel welcome and was easy to approach and talk to. Tom loved to golf and was a devoted fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
