Sara and Courtney started as ambassadors for Outrun the Stigma and enjoyed working towards reducing the stigma surrounding mental health. The following year, they both applied to be on the 2017 planning committee. Sara was hired onto the Promotions and Communications team while Courtney was hired onto the Sponsorship and Finance team. This year they are happy to be leading the planning committee as Co-chairs. Their passion for mental health awareness and their past experience on the planning committee both inspired them to advocate for mental health awareness. Sara is currently going into the fifth year of her Psychology and Sociology degree, and Courtney is going into the fifth year of her Commerce degree with a concentration in Finance.

As a part of the Community Outreach Team we plan logistics, recruit organizations, and coordinate the mental health expo, a post-run fair that hosts local mental health organizations and interactive activities. We also recruit, and coordinate speakers and performers for the event. With this years run being off campus we hope to make the 2018 expo bigger and better than ever. We look forward to seeing you there!
