Conquering Obstacles for Mental Health
HI! Welcome to my fundraising page! I'm so happy you stopped by.
Did you know that 1 in 5 Canadians suffer from a Mental Illness? And I say suffer because too often they feel they can't reach out for support. That's wild right? Unfortunately, Mental Illnesses aren't widely considered an acceptable type of "sick" .... YET! Through initiatives like this fundraiser the CHMA is able to provide much needed education and support. The stigma associated with mental illness is slowly disappearing, we are getting closer!
Studies show that as little as 1 hour/day of movement can decrease symptoms of major depression! Imagine if a fitness regime was prescribed alongside each medication!?
To support this initiative I will be hosting monthly classes at Cor.fit, you can register for these events directly here https://mindbody.io/fitness/studios/cor-fit
You might be asking yourself, why do an obstacle class for mental health? By overcoming physical obstacles we are able to make the mental obstacles that much more manageable.
For $25 you can expect a fun introduction to an obstacle based fitness class and get the opportunity to come be a kid again!
Why not use play to lift your energy and move your body for mental health!!!
If you're not able to attend a class please consider donating by clicking the link above to help those 1 in 5 Canadians gain access to the support they need.
