Run for Women
In support of women and girls’ mental health programming at Halton Healthcare.- Location -Bronte Creek Provincial Park
Join us in 2022 for a virtual or in-person walk/run and feel the power of thousands of runners and walkers coming together to support one another.
The Run for Women, brought to you by the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart program is the largest community donor to Halton Healthcare’s mental health programs supporting women and girls. Over the past 10 years, there has been a significant increase in the rate of ED visits and hospitalizations for mental illness in Halton. Women represent approximately 60% of visits to the ED for a mental health or substance use concern. Of those visits, women between the ages of 18-24 represent the largest age group using our services and women age 86+ are the second largest. With your ongoing contributions, we will improve supports for women and girls in crisis, create more holistic, multi-generational programs, and enhance the capacity of our community-based services.
