CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI — Murphy Hospitality Group is
partnering with the Canadian Mental Health Association, PEI Division,
for an April 22 event, Self <3 Saturday, that will feature activities whose proceeds will benefit CMHA youth programs in PEI such as suicide prevention, addiction services, and self-help groups.

“We are
excited to be partnering with the Canadian Mental Health Association for this
event to provide Islanders with an opportunity to relax and enjoy a fun, carefree
day,” said MHG chief operating officer Ben Murphy in a release. “Mental
health is something we are becoming more and more mindful of in our
industry. With most of our team being between the ages of 15-25, we feel it
is very important to generate awareness and raise funds for this important
cause.”

Activities will include Moksha Yoga
Charlottetown guiding participants through postures and breathing
exercises. The event will also see PEI’s first ever Beer Fun Run, where runners
will weave through the Confederation Trail and finish at the PEI Brewing
Company. In the evening, Upstreet Craft Brewing and PEI Brewing Company will
face off in a lip sync battle, after which more than 20 PEI musicians will
perform a show lasting until midnight.
