The Andrew Dunn Walk/Run is a community event held in partnership with MDAM. It's held each year in Oakbank, MB, on the Saturday of the Mother's Day weekend in May. All ages are invited to take part in physical exercise while raising awareness and reducing the stigma associated with mental illness and suicide.
The event started in 2007 by MDAM's outreach manager Judy Dunn, who lost her son to suicide. It has grown every year, now attracting about 900 runners. To date, it has raised $425,000 in support of mental illness and suicide.
Registration is required for this event.
*A portion of pledges and donations are donated to MDAM.
