The SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU Run for Women has raised over $3.4 million dollars for local mental health services. Every dollar raised supports mothers, daughters, and friends through the funding of programs that allow women to take that next step to recovery.

The SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU Run for Women is a celebration of the healing power of a loving community. We also celebrate the power of loving ourselves. Research shows that running and walking is as effective as taking medication for mild to moderate depression and anxiety. When we come together to walk or run with friends, we experience that exercise can heal the mind and restore the soul.

The Women’s Mental Health program at The Royal is a community-based outreach approach to women’s shelters and hospital programs. Program leads collaborate with partners to provide education and training to ensure that women who experience mental illness receive the best possible care.
