Enjoy the outdoors and running? New semester, new fitness goals to achieve? Or simply looking to make new friends? MEDLIFE McGill 5K Taking STEPS Run is back and this year we are partnering with not one but TWO other clubs! Join us, MUS Desautels Outreach Committee and Bridge in a run that focuses on promoting mental health.

If you need any help signing up, here’s the link to “Guide to registration”.

Half the proceeds will go directly to the MEDLIFE fund and the other half to the Desautels Outreach Committee fund.

The MUS Desautels Outreach Committee promotes interfaculty engagement and community outreach. One of DOC’s goals this semester is to promote mental health awareness to students in the Mcgill community through various initiatives. Stay updated throughout the year for further volunteering engagement and fundraising opportunities.

If you are facing a difficult situation, are confused, or simply want to talk, you can. The BRIDGE initiative aims to show students that mental health struggles are legitimate health struggles. We want to show students that a network of support exists to help each and every one of them. Do not worry about whether or not your problem is big enough to ask for help, as peers, professors and professionals are all here to help you if you need it. Hear from the people you respect and look up to here at McGill, and the great importance they give to Mental Health Awarness.

Here are some pictures of last year’s participants!
