My Story

My name is Anne! You might not know me but I’d like to introduce myself.

Born and raised in London Ontario, I am an individual striving to encourage people to care for people. Although I have not worked in the mental health or medical field, I have a deep understanding of the life experiences that have shaped me over the past 26 years and how they can relate to the other billion humans on this planet.

Ever since I was a kid I told my parents that I would walk to my cottage, approximately 221 KM, located between Sauble Beach and Tobermory Ontario. While I have always suffered from depression, 2017 brought on a new wave of emotions. Life had me feeling what I can best describe as “just plain weird.” In 10 years I’ve never felt so far out of my comfort zone and feeling alone during it all. While I can acknowledge and repeatedly thank the fantastic support system that I have, at the end of the day I felt as though it was me, myself and I. I am still struggling with mental health and I understand that I will be for my whole life but finding different outlets have been my savior! Just before the holidays I decided 2018 was the year I’d walk to my cottage. 

On June 25 my walking partner and I will begin a journey with the intention to get people connected and raise funds for a great organization. 

Thanks for all your support. 

- Anne
