RUN OR WALK TO SUPPORT
The M4M Mission
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.
