On Thursday, I will be running around Victoria wearing a race bib on my chest. And yes, I may very well the only person on Vancouver Island participating .
What is it? a virtual run event (people anywhere and everywhere can run any distance at any point during the day)
Who? Organized by Paul Merrigan of @RunAtCan and we thank you for your hard work and keep fighting, Paul!!
When? Thursday, December 21st aka Winter Solstice aka the shortest day of the year/longest night of the year
Why? to raise awareness and money for mental health programs. Chances are runners will be out running anyway, so why not run for a cause?
I understand all too well how the darkness can creep in and take over so I’m fighting back! Take care of yourself this winter, and reach out if you need help. #FightTheDark
