Outrun the Stigma 2021


JOIN US at Outrun the Stigma’s VIRTUAL event this year to raise mental health awareness and outrun the stigma!

Individuals will be able to record their walking/running stats through Movespring. Outrun the Stigma will provide more information once you register. When you go through the registration process, the only option will be 10k run but NO WORRIES! You can do it all at your own pace throughout the week of the event, and you don’t have complete the entire distance.

The event will also include several activities, giveaways, and much more on OTS’ Instagram: @otscalgary

Outrun the Stigma is Western Canada’s largest student-initiated mental health run. Since 2013, Outrun the Stigma has raised funds for local mental health charities and organizations, raised awareness on mental health and stigma, and acted as a community hub for sharing stories and building connections. This year Outrun the Stigma Calgary is continuing to support Distress Centre Calgary, and all funds raised will go to their organization. Help us continue to support this vital community organization and end mental health stigma.
