Shoppers Drug Mart Love. You. Run. for It for Women
Take part in the Shoppers Drug Mart Love. You. Run. for Women every May in Winnipeg. Everyone is invited to join the 5K or 10K walk/run or Little Steps 1K. This event aims to increase awareness of women's mental health issues in Canada and to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness. It also raises funds for mental health organizations like MDAM to provide women's mental health programs. MDAM currently offers support in the form of workshops, support groups and one-on-one peer support for women in need.
Registration for this event is required and can be done through the Running Room website.
*All pledges and donations will go to MDAM
RUN For it School Program
Run but don’t look for a finish line. Look past the scales and clocks. Past the breakups and hardships and blindsides. Because it’s not about how your glutes look, or how badly your body aches, its about seeing with your heart. So Run. And watch your world get brighter.
Two times a week you’ll train with students just like you. You’ll get access to tools and resources you can use to recognize mental health issues in yourself and others, plus ways to deal with them. You’ll also prepare to participate in SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women.
