Mind Over Miles (“MOM”) is a Toronto-based run club raising funds and awareness for mental health. It was founded by Virginia McKinnell and inspired by her own journey with bipolar disorder. The run club is all about fostering a community dedicated to understanding mental health , and creating a positive space where anyone can share their story and ask for help. On Facebook, MOM releases videos of people sharing their stories. Each video ends with a screen that reads “Join the Conversation.” The hope is that as more people talk about it, the easier it becomes to continue the conversation about mental health.
All of MOM’s fundraising goes towards the construction of the new Murphy Family Centre for Mental Health at Sunnybrook Hospital – a new state-of-the-art 27,000 square foot space within the Garry Hurvitz Brain Sciences Centre, where mental illnesses will be treated with the same dignity, respect and understanding as other brain disorders like stroke or dementia.
