Step Up for Laing at the

Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon

Last year Laing member Alisha had just started working out. She was scared. But she didn’t let that stop her. She joined Stigma Stompers and ran her first race! You don’t have to be an amazing runner – you just need to giv’er!

Will you join Alisha on the Stigma Stompers team?

By joining the Stigma Stompers team, or creating your own in support of Laing, you’re joining a vibrant, supportive, and fun-loving community.

How do you join?

  • Start by registering. You can see a step-by-step guide here.
  • Encourage your friends & family to join your team!
  • Fundraise by collecting donations or hosting events
  • Train for your race
  • Giv’er!

Not a runner? You can walk! Still not into it? You can still support youth living with mental illness by fundraising for the Stigma Stompers team or a runner you know. Together, we can make an impact for youth and young adults who live with mental illness. Mental illness isn’t a choice, but you can make sure that finding help is.

“I look forward to attending the Laing House run group every week. It’s great
motivation to exercise and a fun way to get out and meet new friends.”

– Laing House member
