Run For WomenWe’re proud to be the title sponsor of the Pharmaprix Run for WOMEN, Canada’s first and only national women’s and girls’ running race series.
Women are three times more likely than men to suffer from depression. Research indicates that one in four women will experience some form of depression in their lifetime. Yet only 1 in 3 will seek help due to the stigma associated with mental health. Join Pharmaprix Course pour Les FEMMES to help women who bravely face mental health illness every day.
In 2014 you helped us contribute over $290,000 for Women’s Mental Health programs in 10 cities and you can help us do more this year! We have expanded the run to 12 cities: Unionville, Vancouver, Moncton, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Quebec City, Calgary, Edmonton, Oakville, Regina, Kitchener-Waterloo and Montreal. Let’s work together to create understanding and acceptance of mental health so those in need feel they can openly seek support.
Sign up for the 5K or 10K walk/run timed events and bring your little ones to participate in the 1K Little Steps run. Register with your daughters, a group of friends, your running pals or your husbands (yes men are more than welcome!) and enjoy a day of inspiration for your body, mind and spirit.
