Mental Health is something that is close to my heart. When it hit me years ago, i never thought i was going to be able to walk out of it. But now that i've recovered fully, I believe that I can make a difference for the mental health community. Raising funds for The Make A Difference Race is a way that i'm showing my support to this cause that seeks to breakdown social stigma associated with mental health. All funds raised will be used to help defray the cost of organising this event.
The Make A Difference Race is a running event aimed at raising awareness of depression. The objective of this race is to rally the community to show support and create a more accepting society so that individuals with/recovering from depression will be encouraged to seek help early and find hope once more.For the second year running, The Make A Difference Race also aims to breakdown social stigma associated with depression and mental health, so that individuals recovering from depression may be given greater employment opportunities.
