Celebrate your strength by marching with your friends and family.May 6th, 1 to 4pmSt.Vital Park
The Winnipeg March for Mental Health intends to raise public awareness of how common mental illness is, to normalize and validate the experiences of those people who struggle with mental differences or challenges, and to underscore the truth that no one is defined by their mental illness.Supporters can register as marchers for a fee of $30. After May 1st registration is $40.
Money raised will go directly to covering the costs of this important event. Any additional funds raised will be given to Inspire Community Outreach to support Fall 2017 programming for children and youth with mental differences and those at risk of mental illness. As a token of appreciation, registered marchers will receive a tax receipt for their $30 donation. **There will be prizes for the TOP 3 people, who raise funds through registering***
