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.
