As the warmer weather beckons, so too does the Spring into Action! Walk or Run event hosted annually by Leaside’s Barry Samuel and his team at InsideOut Health + Fitness. This year’s event, the 13th annual, is being held on Saturday, May 26th, in support of mental health awareness, with the proceeds being donated to CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health). The 2k or 5k walk/run starts at 210 Laird Dr. and meanders through beautiful Sunnybrook park.
One in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lives and often the stigma surrounding mental health causes those affected to avoid seeing help. As stated on the Canadian Mental Health Association website, everyone deserves to feel well and we all need a support system to lean on.
Spring into Action is open to participants of all ages and abilities. To register or learn more, visit www.insideoutstudio.ca. For more information or mental health support: www.camh.ca or www.mentalhealthweek.ca
