On Saturday, May 23, 2015, take off for mental health! For the first time ever, the Fredericton International Airport is opening its runway for a 5k race, and all proceeds go to the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick.
This isn’t just a race – bring your whole family to enjoy airside access, watch planes land and take off, and cheer you on as you race to the finish line! Activities for all ages will run from 10 am to 3pm, with the race starting at 1:15pm.
Two thirds of all people affected by mental illness don’t get help because of the stigmas associated with it. Look around you if you’re in a room with 5 people, chances are one of them has or will experience mental illness such as depression, anxiety, or other conditions that affect their emotions, thoughts and behaviours. That is almost 152,000 people in New Brunswick. Funds from the community are used to ensure our growth, to expand our reach and to continue delivering our programs and services to those in needs throughout the province.
The YFC Runway Run is being organized by the Capital City Road Runners in conjunction with the Fredericton International Airport Authority in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick.
