Mississauga teens faced with mental health issues are training for 5k and 10k marathons to be held on May 14th and 15th. The Mississauga Marathons have become an annual event for the Credit Valley Hospital Run Group (CVH Run Group) and a focal point for teens participating in the program.
Teens that have been referred to the program are troubled with depression and/or anxiety. After participating in the CVH Run Group, young men and women discover their coping skills, confidence and sense of self-worth have increased. Furthermore both teens and parents find their moods are elevated.
