A group of students noticed a gap in the running culture for runs that raise mental health awareness and started Outrun the Stigma Calgary to fill that gap. To remain grassroots, every Outrun the Stigma run event invites local community members to speak about their mental health experiences and hosts a Mental Health Expo involving local community organizations, businesses, and charities. Since October 2013, we have brought together more than 1,600 students, community members, and volunteers to raise over $44,000 for Distress Centre Calgary.

In May 2016 our student club initiative transitioned to a not-for-profit organization with the goal of expanding our online platform and hosting our annual event in cities and communities across Canada. Thus, we are having our first ever Outrun the Stigma Edmonton this year on October 15th, 2017

Choose between a 5 or 10 km. walk or run and receive some awesome swag bag at the day of the race, then take some time to talk to our speakers, performers, and community mental health resource presenters. You can fundraise for the CMHA right on this platform utilizing the Donations Tab. Help us break our fundraising goal of $5,000 in our very first year! (Lets show the Calgary chapter some friendly rivalry!)
