1 in 5 women experience postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, or other reproductive mental health issues, and the ongoing pandemic has only amplified these experiences.

That’s why, the Vancouver-based Run For Women, brought to you by Shoppers Drug Mart, will support the Reproductive Mental Health Program at BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre, making a direct difference for women + families in our local community.

Rally together with your friends, families, or colleagues and join this community-centric event to run, walk, or roll in support of women’s mental health. This year’s event will take place in person and virtually, so you can participate however you feel most comfortable!

Your investment, made through your registration and any additional donations you collect, will allow researchers to develop an innovative Virtual Reproductive Mental Health Platform that will equip women to effectively navigate their mental health challenges anytime, anywhere – improving the lives of women, children, and families in your community.

Date: May 11, 2024
Location: Virtual or in-person at UBC Wesbrook Village
