Light Up The Dark (ON)
My passion for Mental Health started after my experience with rape and sexual assault. It broke my heart to know I am probably not the only one feeling lost and desperately needing help. It is extremely overwhelming, exhausting and discouraging to search for help. I am determined to help others through their Mental Health journey. With this mission, I launched a Mental Health initiative called Light Up The Dark.
I will be running the Run For Women 10km blindfolded to raise awareness about Mental Health.
For me, running with a blindfold symbolizes what it can feel like battling with Mental Health; alone, consumed by your thoughts, and surrounded by darkness. I hope this initiative will raise awareness of Mental Health by helping others know they are not alone, and inspire them to keep fighting to find their light.
During this 10km you can walk or run alone or with a friend! You can run any day and submit your scores by September 27th.
Please consider donating to help us reach our fundraising goal. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to women’s mental health programs in our community. Together, we're going to raise some help.
