WHY ARE WE SO EXCITED?

Jog4Joy is thrilled to be presented by WELLS FARGO, our title sponsor again this year. We appreciate their COMMITMENT to mental and emotional wellness in our community and beyond!

This year we’ve teamed up with The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre which provides mental health and substance use information and resources to children, youth and families across B.C. The Centre is a program of BC Mental Health & Addiction Services, an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority.

 

Jog4Joy is proud to embrace the centre’s Youth Ambassador Program. It is a volunteer opportunity for youth and young adults from across BC to engage in promoting mental health and well-being amongst their friends, family, peers and community. They will share ideas and connect with other youth participating in a number of different projects and events. YOUTH SUPPORTING YOUTH – WE LOVE IT!

THE EVENT:

Jog4Joy presented by WELLS FARGO is a JOYFUL event for a serious issue. Our core theme is “Believe” and each year we have a new word to inspire mental and emotional wellness. This year the word is “COURAGE”.

We believe:

  • It takes COURAGE to speak up!
  • It takes COURAGE to speak out!
  • It takes COURAGE to ask and receive help!
  • It takes COURAGE to create change!

Through this event, we enCOURAGE participants to believe in their COURAGE to create and embrace a better future by making their mental health a PRIORITY.

This year’s collector’s medal will not only be a symbol of completing a goal and supporting an important event/cause; it is a lasting reminder of how much “COURAGE” you possess.

The beautiful 5k walk/run in Stanley Park focuses on positive, joyful and supportive energy for your community, family/friends and the new friends you’ll meet along the way! We also like to have a lot of FUN!

Our amazing JOY AMBASSADORS will enCOURAGE you along the route and cheer as you cross the finish line!
