RUN OR WALK TO SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH!
Our goal is to increase mental health awareness, erase the stigma surrounding mental illness and maximize the amount of donations to mental health organizations.
Student-Athlete Mental Health Initiative:
We will be donating 100% of the proceeds from this road race to the Student-Athlete Mental Health Initiative. SAMHI is focused to eliminate mental illness stigma in post-secondary sport, facilitate access to the resources needed to maintain and improve mental health, and advocate on behalf of student-athletes experiencing mental illness.
This event has been created in memory of Alex McLaughlin; a benevolent person, an all around athlete from the community and varsity basketball player for Acadia University. Alex took his own life due to depression in April 2014.
Important Race Details:
What The Iceberg Means:
The iceberg logo symoblizes mental health and the human mind; the conscious and sub-conscious, the perception of yourself and others and what mental illness can look like on the surface.
Directions: Commencing at 0815 hours at Hawthorne Elementary School, participants proceed northbound
on Hawthorne Street, turning left onto Prince Albert Road towards Ochterloney Street. At
Ochterloney Street participants turn right onto the Dartmouth Multiuse Trail proceeding
around Sullivan’s Pond back towards Hawthorne Street. Here they turn left on Hawthorne,
then right onto Crichton Ave, right onto Glen Manor Drive and right onto Brookdale Crescent
running on the right hand side with traffic. From Brookdale Crescent participants will head
onto the Lake Banook Trail taking a clockwise trip around Lake Banook on the trail until
reaching Hawthorne Street at which point they will turn left, cross Prince Albert Road and
return to the Hawthorne Elementary School field.
