This summer, over the course of 30 days I'll be running 10 half marathons in 10 cities across Canada. The entire journey is in support of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, a leading research and treatment facility, and will be documented in a short film.
Living with depression and anxiety, I use running to take care of my own mental health. By taking on a huge challenge, I want to turn something that can be immobilizing into something inspirational.
With the help of a small crew, I'll be running a total of 211 kilometres, sharing my story along the way and connecting with others across the country in an effort to talk about mental health - it's something that affects us all.
In the span of a year I've grown from a place where I found it difficult to get out of bed in the morning to one where I look forward to heading out for a long distance run.
This campaign is about doing something awesome, and I want you to be a part of it. Follow along for lots of content related to the campaign!
