Every June, North Shore Schizophrenia Society members, family, friends and supporters “walk the world for schizophrenia” – an awareness and fundraising event in which participants, many with special t-shirts marking the occasion, walk in solidarity with each other, hand out leaflets to the public, and help remove the stigma surrounding serious mental illness.
The walk takes place on a Sunday morning on the famous West Vancouver Centennial Sea Walk, from John Lawson Park (waterfront at the base of 17th Street) to Dundarave Pier and back.
An information table, under a large banner, at the walk’s starting point, provides a wide range of brochures for those who wish to stop and discuss the illness and our work in more detail. Donations are also welcome.
You can find specific details for the upcoming walk by turning to the “News and Events” section on our website at www.northshoreschizophrenia.org
