Get your onesie on and support CMHA

This May 10 put on a onesie and head down to Stuart Park as part of Mental Health Week

Being cozy and looking cozy in public can be a fashion battle, but this May 10 it won’t be a problem.

As part of the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Week, Kelowna residents are being encouraged to come down to Stuart Park dressed in their favourite onesie.

Have fun, meet strangers and share your love for the uniqueness of onesies during the #GetYourOnesieOn event.
