Mood Disorders Society of Canada is very pleased to announce that Christine Socasau of Vancouver, has taken up the Andean Volcano Challenge which starts in less than a month.  She will be raising funds for the Mood Disorders Society of Canada’s Elephant in the Room anti-stigma program.

 

Christine will join close to 100 fellow HSBC employees from around the world in Quito, Ecuador to hike 100km over 5 days (backpacking and sleeping under the stars at 4,300m (over 14,000ft) altitude).   Their hike will support a shared goal – which is to raise funds and awareness of mental health, supporting dozens of mental health organizations world-wide such as the Mood Disorders Society of Canada.

Christine’s fundraiser ends on March 30, 2020, donations of all sizes are appreciated.  Together, we can and do make a difference.  Please visit her fundraising page for the full story and to make a contribution at:   https://www.canadahelps.org/en/pages/andean-volcano-challenge/
