McKenzie Lake Sponsors the London Walk and Talk Event
McKenzie Lake is doing its part in de-stigmatizing mental health issues and supporting those who suffer from them. In addition to sponsoring the second annual London Walk and Talk, part of the Defeat Depression campaign, McKenzie Lake is building a team to participate and show our support.
The Walk and Talk will take place on February 27, 2016 in Victoria Park. Registration starts at 9am and the walk will begin at 10am. Following the walk, there will be an indoor get-together featuring a guest speaker.
The Defeat Depression campaign strives to create awareness and de-stigmatize mood disorders such as depression and anxiety to support those affected by mental health issues. The campaign also raises funds for local organizations that lend a hand to those in need of support to battle these mental health issues. The London Walk and Talk is raising funds for the London and District Distress Centre. Last year, the walk was able to raise $25 000 and the goal this year is set at $30 000. McKenzie Lake is proud to be supporting this important cause and we hope to see you at Victoria Park on February 27.
