I just signed up for my first 5K! I'm excited to be joining thousands of walkers and runners across Canada in the first ever virtual Run for Women, brought to you by the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart™ program raising help for women’s mental health programs at Women's College Hospital. Those of you who know me well know that I'm the polar opposite of a "runner", but this is for an amazing cause that I'm proud to support. Besides, we're allowed to walk it too!
The virtual Run for Women will take place during September 17 - 27, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to WCH's Women's Mental Health program. It's a program that is trauma-informed and designed specifically for the unique needs of women. You can learn more about the program here: https://www.womenscollegehospital.ca/care-programs/mental-health/
It's now more important than ever to get moving for mental health. Join me in making a difference! You can make a join my team, Dumbledore's Army (of course I named it this), to walk, run, or roll virtually along with me, and/or you can make a donation to help me reach my $250 goal!
