Some of our Knot A Breast Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat Team Members are familiar with Brian Kelly of SMBS Personal Training and Wellness Studio as a personal trainer or from taking his fitness classes. All of us are familiar with the effect of exercise on mental health. Brian has brought these together in his second annual Threshold Challenge.

Threshold to a Brighter Tomorrow raises money for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) to provide rehabilitation care. The Threshold Challenge began in 2019 (see Knot A Blog: KAB joins the Metabolic Challenge for “Threshold to a Brighter Tomorrow”), and this year strives for even greater success. The challenge encourages people to get involved by completing daily and weekly physical and mental challenges for the month of February. Every challenge completed as well as every $10 donation to Threshold to a Brighter Tomorrow is rewarded with an entry for a prize. The set of daily challenges and the weekly challenges are provided below, along with the ways to win.

Threshold was designed in 2009 for Jared Humenik as his own “fun” brand of fight wear which he received as a gift for Christmas that year. In 2012, we lost Jared to mental illness. His family is now using the Threshold name to raise money and awareness for mental health and addiction.

Please help us bring awareness to mental health and addiction. For more information, contact SMBS Training Studio!

Threshold to a Brighter Tomorrow is in the memory of Jared Humenik
