Healthy Start, Healthy Future is proud to announce our third annual Celebrity Tournament, this year featuring a special celebrity skills challenge with some of your favourite stars.

The Celebrity Tournament is happening in support of the Life with a Baby Program to support parents and prevent Postpartum Mood Disorders. This year, Moxiipro is working with us to raise funds to support families affected by cancer. Our support will be focused on the mental and emotional health of mothers, and mothers of preterm infants who spend time in the NICU to prevent postpartum depression.

This highly anticipated event will feature a handful of influential celebrities who have chosen to lend their face to the cause.

Our 3rd annual tournament will take place on Monday July 25th 2016 at the Thornhill Golf & Country Club. More details on the agenda for the day to follow.

Healthy Start, Healthy Future manages the Life with a Baby Program, Canada’s largest peer‐to‐peer network with over 10,000 members. This program is geared toward providing a Healthy Start for parents and children from day one.  Members are primarily mother’s aged 25‐40 with at least one child. Proceeds from the event will benefit:

  • Life with a Baby and other programs that support new and expecting parents to ease the transition to parenthood and prevent the debilitating effects of Post‐Partum Depression and of Perinatal Mood Disorders.
