Running 50km for mental health
Andrew Garant and Cody Teichroeb (avid lacrosse players and all around athtles) have a shared goal. To raise awareness for mental health.
They want to complete an ultramarathon - 50km's on the rail trail from Vernon to Kelowna on May 10.
The run is a fundraiser for the B.C. Mental Health Foundation - and the timing seems fitting, as the mental health of many is impacted by the pandemic.
Andrew's wife works as a nurse in Mental Health and Substance Use, and Cody's reason for supporting mental health comes from a family member's experience with PTSD.
