Hi everybody, I have registered to run the 2020 Moncton Run for Women in May.
This is a very important cause to me, as the run will support women’s mental health programs at the Beauséjour Family Crisis Resource Centre.
A donation, ANY donation, will help provide crisis intervention and counselling to women from South East New Brunswick. In our region, women may otherwise have to wait more than a year for standard community counselling or have to pay up to $150 per hour for help - which many simply do not have. With your donation, women with mental illness can receive the support that they need. Your effort can help save lives.
As most of you know, I myself went through a crisis last September and had to seek out psychiatric help in hospital. I am eternally grateful that I was able to receive immediate attention and care, but I know I am one of the lucky ones. It is still a daily struggle and I have demons I must face every morning, but running has been enormously therapeutic for me and this run in particular has a very special place in my heart.
Any donations, no matter how big or small, is helpful and will go towards a wonderful cause. Mental illness is awful, but we can work together to ensure everyone has a fighting chance.
