SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women
Take part in the SHOPPERS 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.
