Shut Out the Stigma
Martin Godwin, a recent graduate of Myers Park High School and member of the varsity soccer team set up an interesting fundraising effort. This year, with his personal experience suffering with mental health issues top-of-mind, he chose to turn his efforts to Thompson, which provides mental health services. Every time his team achieved a "shut out" money was raised for Thompson.
The Board of Trustees at Thompson was so struck by the cause that they decided to match his donations.
When asked why he chose to support Thompson, Godwin mentions that Thompson’s programs help folks learn how to create healthy relationships which was helpful to him when he battled depression and anxiety.
Join the "Shut Out the Stigma” fundraiser to provide mental health assistance for children at Thompson. We are so impressed with Martin and his desire to make a difference in the lives of children facing tough obstacles at such an early age.
