Not only is running great for your mental and physical health, but the process of learning how to run–gradually building up your abilities, pushing yourself a bit further each week, making healthy changes in your life to support the progress you’re making, and gathering a group of peers around to support you–is a process that’s full of parallels with the experience of working with a peer support group on your own journey. So the Self-Help Resource Centre is thrilled to be running to raise money for peer support in Ontario in the upcoming Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon Charity Challenge 5K.
The race is coming up on the 20th of October, our team of staff, volunteers, and board members is getting trained up now, and we’d love to have your support as well. Help the SHRC connect people with the power of peer support. Please donate to our team by visiting Mark’s fundraising page and making a donation. All of the funds raised go to the Self-Help Resource Centre. CLICK HERE TO DONATE
