Milton Town Council members Councillor Sameera Ali, Kristina Tesser Derksen and Rick Di Lorenzo were excited this week to be joining thousands of walkers and runners across Canada in the 2021 Run for Women raising help for women’s mental health programs at Halton Healthcare.
The 3 councilors got together to form a Milton Council team with themselves as walkers/runners and also received a financial donation from councillor John Challinor
The councillors walked up and down Main Street in Milton’s downtown core as well as Mary, King and Martin Street. Stopping at various business establishments and talking to local residents along the walk.
As many of us are experiencing, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on our mental health. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to women’s mental health programs in Milton care of Milton District Hospital Foundation.
