Une sur cinq: run for mental health
The runners that make up Une sur cinq are 10 young professionals and students working in fields where pushing one’s self to extreme limits is regularly demanded, sometimes to the detriment of a healthy and balanced lifestyle. This environment inevitably lends itself to the development of mental health issues where taboos are already especially prevalent.
All 10 athletes are also in love with running and want to make a difference by shedding light on the issue of mental illness. They have set out to complete the Montreal half marathon while raising money for the Mental Health Foundation.
This year marks the 3rd time Une sur cinq is running as a group. By making a donation, you are helping to promote the benefits of physical activity on mental health. By sharing this idea you are helping to break taboos and reduce the prejudices that surround mental illness.
