A Day in Her Shoes is a great opportunity to unite women for an evening of glitz and glamour to promote positive mental health while supporting a fund-raiser for much needed mental health resources in the greater Saint John area. CMHA of NB is pleased to have as the guest speaker for A Day in Her Shoes, Jennifer Gendron, owner of Lifestyles Fitness and a passionate wellness advocate.
"I am very honored to be speaking at A Day in Her Shoes as I truly feel there is a powerful connection between physical and mental wellness. Over the past few years, I have experienced firsthand how living a healthy active lifestyle can have a huge impact on a person's mental well-being. Through experiences with my own family as well as client interactions over the years, I have learned that physical activity and mindfulness practices can offer great tools to cope with difficult situations." says Gendron.
A Day in Her Shoes is being held during the 66th annual Mental Health Week May 1-7, 2017. During this year’s campaign CMHA will be asking all Canadian’s to “Get Loud” in support of mental health. Getting loud means speaking up to stop the discrimination and the stigma that usually go hand in hand with mental illness. It means using your voice to raise awareness and build support. For someone at work. For someone at home. For yourself.
Hors d’oeuvres, wine, and other beverages, as well as a silent auction accompany the season’s best fashion show, which takes place May 3rd in the Market Square Atrium. The latest in spring fashions from Samuel & Co., Inspire Collections, Walsh Luggage, Manchester Shoe Salon and hair by Element5 Spa will be featured. Tickets for A Day in Her Shoes are available at CMHA of NB Saint John office (15th floor of City Hall), online at www.eventbrite.ca, by calling 633-1705, at Samuel & Co. (in Market Square), at NWH Modelling, at Manchester Shoe Salon, and at Lifestyles Fitness in Hampton.
A Day in Her Shoes is proudly sponsored by Market Square, Scotiabank, The Wave, the Province of New Brunswick, and the Telegraph Journal.
