Since the launch in May 2016, #IWillBeOkay ‘Fight Against Depression’ Awareness Campaign is entering its third phase with an event. Aptly named as #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike, the event is a mind and physically challenging engagement activities that Fiona, the Founder of the campaign had in mind for her fellow supporters.
The idea came as Fiona wants to spread out the message that everyone who is battling with depression to be aware that they have the ability to get better and that they are not alone. She added that sweaty, mind and physically challenging event like this helped her in so many ways therefore she wanted her followers to experience it as well. The event targets to gather all walks of life regardless whether they may or may not suffer from depression. “You don’t need to be depressed to join the event. It is all about spreading the awareness that one should acknowledge the issue if they have it and seek help before it is too late”, said Fiona
Race Director, Ariff Syariff who has years of experience of organizing similar event will be leading the hikers at Bukit Kiara this coming 11th March. Ariff is also an experienced trail runner, ultra runner, marathoner and hiker.
