Join me May 30th to help raise funds for Daya Counselling
Ten years ago next month, I lost a very dear friend. She chose to leave the earth on her own terms. It’s how she lived her life and it’s the way she left the many that loved her dearly. We all still miss her and I think of her constantly. This is why I thought it was a sign from the universe – and her – to take part in this virtual event May 30th, 2020. It’ll be just less than 2 weeks after the 10 year anniversary of Mercedes’ passing. Defeat Depression London was originally going to do a walk and talk event in support of Daya Counselling. But, life made an audible and we’re now isolated in our homes and not able to take in group activities.
I’m heading up my own team in the 6th Annual Walk & Talk for Mental Health. On May 30th, I’ll be walking for Mercedes and for those that suffer from depression and are in need of counselling but might not be able to afford it. Of course, since it’s virtual, you can really do anything you want on that day. Walk, run, yoga, let out those cooped up frustrations with a boxing working. Anything, as long as it’s active.
Here’s a bit about Daya:
The proceeds from London’s 6th annual Walk & Talk for Mental Health Defeat Depression event are going to Daya Counselling Centre’s subsidized counselling program, which offers counselling to individuals who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
Daya Counselling offers thousands of hours of counselling to hundreds of individuals, couples, and families each year, and the organization approaches counselling with compassion – based on a relationship of understanding and respect. The service is staffed by professional psychotherapists and registered social workers.
Join my team
Please consider donating for the person in your Mercedes or your own that couldn’t hold on anymore or is barely hanging on. They’re not alone and on May 30th, we should remind them of this. You can join my team and/or donate here.
Thank you and I’ll see you on the virtual pavement May 30th!
