My Life My Adventure

Overcoming Mental Illness One Summit at a Time. My mission with this project is to simply help people understand that mental illness, is just like any other disease. That no matter our life challenges, our past or our fears, everything is possible one step at a time. I wish to help people find a balance in every aspect of their lives so that they can live happier lives. My dream is to climb the seven summits. The seven summits are the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. To reach the summit is considered a challenge of mountaineering. To this date in 2019, about 420 people have successfully completed the challenge. Of these, only 18 are Canadians. It is a physical, mental and financial challenge that demands a lot of courage, determination and perseverance. I had the pleasure in 2018, to summit Mt Denali 6190m (Alaska, USA) and Mt Kilimanjaro (Tanzania, Africa). My next objective is to climb Mt Elbrus (Russia, Europe) 5642m in August and Mt Aconcagua 6962m (Argentina, South America) in December 2019. Through my adventures and travelling, I am learning so much about myself and life. I believe that we all have a mountain to climb. We have to remember that is not all about the summit, but it is the journey to get there, that really matters. I am now offering conferences (school, corporate and general public) to raise mental health awareness and to promote the power of the dream and passion. My goal with my presentation is to inspire the population to reach out for help and to live the life of their dreams. Please feel free to contact me at jean_francois_dupras@hotmail.com for more details and to make a reservation. My fundraising goal is to raise the symbolic amount of $43,319, which represent the total elevation of the 7 summits. We all know someone who is dear to us, and who has or will have mental health issues at some point in their lives. Together we can make a difference and help people in need. All donations will go towards supporting the Canadian Mental Health Association - Calgary Region. Sincerely Jean-Francois Dupras.

Your Body and Mind Wellness

Promoting mental wellness one massage at a time!

 

Massage therapy have many benefits. They are known to lower cortisol levels, which determine how the body responds to stress, and anxiety. It is also believed that touch releases hormones in your body that create a positive emotional reaction, helping to put your mind at ease and improving your mood.

I am promoting body-mind wellness and self care by encouraging people to take at least 60 minutes of their time for themselves to mentally and physically unwind.

 

Body & Mind Wellness will be donating $5 to CMHA Calgary Region for every massage treatment booked on October 14th, 2019 to May 4th, 2020.

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.

#noyearsresolution

My goal with this fundraiser initiative is to encourage people to practice healthy daily actions to help establish habits for the new year! 

I will be donating 100% of the proceeds I receive from the affordable meal plans that I will be creating for new clients!
