Music Heals Charitable Foundation
Music Heals raises money and awareness for music therapy programs serving children, seniors, palliative care, burn units, the autism spectrum, at-risk youth, rehabilitation, and more.
Music Heals increases access to music therapy across Canada, with a particular focus on BC, and have funded over 10,000 additional hours of music therapy in just their first three years in operation. Music therapy is the skilled use of music and musical elements by a trained music therapist to achieve physical, emotional, and even spiritual goals with their clients. It is proven to aid in the treatment of dementia, pain relief, trauma, bereavement, and many other areas of care. Music therapy in Canada is entirely donor-supported and receives no government funding.
Funds raised by the Modo Spring Run-Off 8k will be used to support Music Heals. Your support will directly benefit music therapy programs at the Dr. Peter Centre in Vancouver's West End.
