The Story of the Mane Event Team
This mental health focused fundraising team was founded by Sevin Davies in 2016 when he was just 11. It started with a goal of selling enough fidget spinner to buy a barbecue and two basketball net’s for Pathstone. That project was realized thanks to support from our community.
In March of 2017, the Mane Event Team released a clothing line to honour the memory of Amy Bleul. The creator of the Semicolon Project lost her life to suicide. At the end of this campaign, the Team presented a cheque for $5,000 to Pathstone and was recognized as a Pathstone Protector in the organizations Playground & Healing Garden.
It was at the opening of that garden that the Team met the owner of Mountainview Homes, who’s company name is honoured at Pathstone. They are currently in the midst of a campaign to raise $5,000 by May 1st which will be matched by Mr. Basciano.

Duncan MacDonald and Sevin have been friends since elementary school. As a Mane Event Team Member, he believes that the stigma of mental health will remain the same without the support of community. Duncan dreams of the day that mental health will be treated as readily as any other health condition.
