Over the last 10 weeks, I’ve walked 113.3 km in 24 hours and 50 minutes. I’ve reached my goal speed, and now I’m working on extending the length of my walks. Within a few weeks I should reach my goal to walk 10km in under 2 hours.
Why am I doing this?
I want to bring UPLIFT to Ottawa to reduce depression in people with epilepsy.
UPLIFT is a proven program in which groups of 6-8 people with epilepsy meet by teleconference for an hour a week over 8 weeks to develop the tools to reduce depression and anxiety. It is proven to have an impact even months after the program concludes.
1 in 4 adults with epilepsy have active depression. This program can help.
