We had a tremendous turnout to Victoria’s first Walk/Run for Mental Health. 60+ people walked and ran to support those living with mental illness, and to break down the stigma associated with mental illness. Here’s a picture of everyone just before we ran/walked. I’d be happy to speak with a local reporter about this great event, then first of many, and how we raised over $7000 for a local mental health non-profit. (Chris Deakin photo)
