During the 5th annual Taking Stigma to the Trash run, Winnipeg community runners have set a goal to run 12 hours with hope to raise awareness around mental health and Take Stigma to the Trash and to please help keep the event green.
Taking Stigma to the Trash began in light of a personal connection to mental health tragedies in the community, with hope to raise awareness around mental health and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. This event is now a community initiative involving multiple runners working together to #TrashStigma for mental health. Join them in Taking Stigma to the Trash on Garbage Hill with a donation to CMHA Manitoba and Winnipeg.
Proceeds raised in Taking Stigma to the Trash will fund school-based mental illness literacy and stigma reduction programming in schools and post-secondary institutions, and in programs for youth transitioning out of the child welfare system.
