Our CAUSE

Living with mental health challenges is hard; living with the stigma and lack of tools to manage mental health challenges is even harder. Each year, we bring awareness and raise money for women’s mental health programs in local communities while advocating the general positive affects of exercise on mental health wellness. Studies have shown that women are three times more likely than men to suffer from depression. Research indicates that one in four women will experience some form of depression in their lifetime. With millions of women bravely facing mental health challenges every day, we need your help to create a positive impact in their lives while using exercise to manage your own general mental health wellness. Did you know that PET scans indicate that running can increase the level of serotonin in the brain, which is a key treatment for depression1? Can you imagine celebrating this with hundreds of women at the SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women!
