Let's walk or run for women's mental health.

The Run for Women, brought to you by the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart™ program is a 5K Run/Walk, and 10K Run taking place in 18 cities across Canada.

This year, even though we can't gather together, we're coming together virtually to show our support for 18 local charities providing critical mental health support and care. Living with mental health challenges is hard but we can come together to make a difference. Every dollar raised supports mothers, daughters, and friends through the funding of programs that allow women to take that next step to recovery.

We Walk and Run to Change Minds

The Run for Women is a celebration of the healing power of a loving community. We also celebrate the power of loving ourselves. Research shows that running and walking is as effective as taking medication for mild to moderate depression and anxiety. When we come together to walk or run with friends, we experience that exercise can heal the mind and restore the soul. That feeling is enhanced by the love and support of our community.
