Junel Malapad, is an ultramarathon runner and mental health champion. Junel has raised over $62,000 for CMHA Manitoba and Winnipeg and this his 10th run we are hoping to raise $10,000. Last year, a documentary chronicling Junel’s incredible journey of running and raising over $300,000 for local charities including ours, debuted on CBC Gem Running for Your Life (44 mins)

 

Here is a short video that was produced with the help of Lululemon Run Across Manitoba (4 mins) Junel is a Lululemon Local Ambassador.

 

This fundraising event supports youth mental health programs and services. In 2022-23 there was 42 per cent more reported youth suicides than during the 2021-22 year (Manitoba Advocate). Huddle Broadway and Futures Forward are two CMHA programs and services offered to youth who are aging out of care, serve under-served populations and that provide low-barrier access.
