Hello everyone! Hope you all had an amazing Canada Day long weekend!

I spent my Canada day at the Barrie Races in support of the Seasons Centre for Grieving Children. As my platform for Miss World Canada is Mental Illness, what better way to Celebrate Canada’s Independence than giving back to the community. The charity helps children and teens who are grieving the death or life-threatening illness of their loved one.

 

Ready to Run!

Being Canadian means you have beautiful lakes in your back yard!

You all know I love to run! Running has helped me deal with my own depression and anxiety. When I was invited to attend the run, I jumped at the opportunity.

I got sick earlier that week and was so worried that I would not be well enough to run. At the start of the run, I found myself wheezing and struggling to breathe. That being said, I pushed through, challenging not only my fitness level, but also my mental state, and ended up finishing the run with a good time.

Happy I got my medal!

Thank you so much for having me Barrie Races!

 

Your Miss South Central Ontario.
