>From the Distress Centre on Campus club:


Hello everyone!


On Sunday, October 5th Distress Centre on Campus and the Mental Health Awareness Club will be
hosting the second annual Outrun the Stigma, a 5km run and 3km walk to raise money for Calgary
Distress Centre. This event will be happening on University of Calgary campus and will take place
snow or shine. If you'd like to resister, donate, or learn more about our amazing planning
committee, you can do so on our website: http://outrunthestigma.ca. 


The goal of this event, while raising money for Calgary Distress Centre, is to continue the
conversation surrounding mental health awareness and stigma. If you would like to share your own
story on how you overcame the stigma surrounding mental health, send us am email at
outrunthestigma2014 at gmail.com. 


If you'd like to participate but you're not interested in running or walking, we're looking for a
group of 50-80 enthusiastic volunteers to help make Outrun the Stigma a success. Volunteers can
register here: http://outrunthestigma.ca/volunteer.


On the day of the event we will have live musical performances, speeches, and prizes. For up-to-date
information on the day-of details, check out our Facebook event:


Last year, Outrun the Stigma saw over 270 participants help raise over $5000. This year, we're
hoping to see more participants, and reach a fundraising goal of $8000. On October 5th, run or walk
for a cause and help support the services of Calgary Distress Centre.



Thank you,
