Hello! My name is Sarah Hill, Co-Chair of Families for Depression Awareness' upcoming Strides Against Stigma walk event. When I was first asked by Julie to co-chair the event, I was both keen to get started and a little nervous.Planning an event of this scale is a daunting task, but I am not the type of women to back away from a challenge. I know what I may lack in experience I will make up for with enthusiasm and organizational skills!
There has been a flurry activity since my Co-Chair, Stanley King, and I joined the event team. However there is still months of work ahead of us and we need everyone’s help to ensure this event is a success! So, if you don’t have experience being a team leader, committee member, or raising money, it doesn’t matter. Time, enthusiasm and a willingness to help reduce the stigma of depression are extremely valuable assets and we welcome anyone who wishes to share them with us!
