Starting at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 18th, 2016 we'll hike the 24 km stretch of the Baden Powell Trail, from Cleveland Dam to Deep Cove, in ONE day to raise funds for mental health. This is a gruelling day -- it will take approximately 7-10 hours of hiking to complete the trail -- but the pride and satisfaction you'll feel at having accomplished this goal will make it all worthwhile. With this event our goal is to raise $25,000 for subsidized counselling. By participating and sharing this hike with your friends, you're also helping to spread awareness about mental health and wellness! Much like a hiking trail, the journey towards mental wellness is full of peaks and valleys. But by confronting this intense challenge in one day, we aim to empathize with those who are experiencing emotional trauma. Are you ready for this challenge? Join us!

Why support Done in a Day? Because of the power of counselling, where healing is possible.

Sandy's Story: Healing is Possible When There is Support
Growing up in a family that battles problem gambling, I experienced a lot of pain and guilt which was expressed through poor decision making in life. I could not stop the downward spiral until I sought counselling. Being a student at the time, I was unable to afford the fees. Subsidized counselling gave me the courage and skills to overcome depression and put my life back together. Iā€™m joining the fundraising hike to help others who may be suffering and can use the healing support.
