I am going to WALK from McTaggart SK TO Weyburn on Sunday, May 27, 2012!! (15 km)
On May 27, 2012 DEFEAT DEPRESSION walk/run/cycle events will be held across Canada - visit the website, www.defeatdepression.ca to see a map of locations.
You will see WEYBURN on the map! http://defeatdepression.ca/weyburn/
In the absence of a formal 'event' here, I am going to do a 'solo' walk (although I would love to have company) from McTaggart SK to Weyburn on Sunday, May 27, 2012 to bring attention to and raise funds for the campaign.
If you would like to sponsor my walk with a donation: www.canadahelps.org/gp/17828
I also hope generate interest in a formal organizing committee for a 2013 event!
I am proud to have been part of a national steering committee formed by the Mood Disorders Society of Canada to launch this national campaign and annual event to raise awareness about depression and other mood disorders.
I want to help reduce the stigma often associated with a mental illness.
This campaign will also raise funds to assist local non-profit mental health organizations deliver services and supports.
Thank you SO very much for taking the time to read this - it means a great deal to me!
