The Discovery Health Care Foundation organized walks for mental health around the region this past weekend, in an effort to raise awareness and funds in many different communities.
Some of the participating communities include: Arnold’s Cove, Bonavista, Trinity Bay North, Clarenville, Garden Cove, North Harbour and Swift Current.
The Foundation is continuing its efforts leading up to Mental Health Day on Oct. 10, challenging all businesses to purchase t-shirts for their employees and wear them on that date to show support.
This was just one of the walks on Sept. 9 with local people gathering in Bonavista and walking from the hospital to Old Days Pond.
The Tip-A-Vista Wellness Foundation were also instrumental in organizing this particular community walk and fundraiser.
If interested in becoming involved for Oct. 10, call 466-5231 or Nicole Parrott at 466-3339.
