3rd Annual Defeat Depression Walk Run

Join us on May 29 for our 3rd Annual Defeat Depression event. We are hoping to do an in-person event but with restrictions that may not be possible. We will announce as soon as possible, if we are going to offer an in person option as well.

This event, even if virtual is an important method to raise much needed funds for the Pottle Centre. Our focus this year will be to fund raise for our newest program, B L O O M, as well as fund raise to be able to relocate to a more suitable space.

How does it work? You follow the link provided to bring you to the Defeat Depression website. There you need to go to the tab for Locations and choose St. John’s. Once there, you can join by creating your account and paying the low registration fee of $25.00 Registration will get you a swag bag that will include a Shirt and other items. From there, we kindly ask that you ask friends and family to sponsor you and maybe even join you, form a team and fund raise together (or try to outdo each other!)

On May 29th there will be a National event that will be broadcast virtually so you may also tune in for that. Some folks will choose to do their event on that day while others may want to choose another day to do their activity.

We also create posts on Social Media and it’s great to follow us there to keep up on the latest news. We will also have some incentive contests and prizes to make the event a lot more fun!

There is also an App called Strava which you can download to track your progress!
