Their goal is to complete an ultra marathon (50km) along the rail trail from Vernon to Kelowna, BC on May 8, 2021 . They will be training for this run for the next four months, keep watching for updates on their progress! The timing of this fundraiser is relevant to the times we face today, as mental health has been on a steady decline from the social isolation of COVID-19. Not only that, on an average year, 1 in 4 Canadians struggle with mental health issues during their lifetime. On a personal level, Andrew's wife works as a nurse in Mental Health and Substance Use and has seen first hand the difference awareness, understanding, and empathy can have on an individual who is struggling with mental health. Cody's passion for mental health stems from his wife's experience with PTSD. Since then he has been passionate about erasing the stigma and starting the conversation.
Please join Andrew Garant and Cody Teichroeb in raising money for the BC Mental Health Foundation.
