Garbage Hill then Anavets
300-1395 Ellice, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3G 3P2
Bring your own sled, toboggan, inner tube, whatever you like to Sleigh the Stigma around Addiction, Overdose, & Mental Health. Cool Runnings (Peace Be The Journey) was one of Jeni’s and my all time favorite movies, we even incorporated their famous chant when we would get ready to go down waterslides. Tobogganing was our favorite winter activity. So as I begin to think of organizing this summer’s 2nd Annual Drop The Needle, Pick Up The Pace Overdose Awareness Walk. I thought combining two of these things she loved would be a great and fun way to raise money and awareness to stop the stigma around overdose, addiction, and mental health.

Bring your own sled and come out for this family friendly event, and enjoy the ups and downs of Garbage Hill for the first hour.

Afterward, join me at 300-1395 Ellice (Actually on Empress across from Walmart) for a showing of the movie Cool Runnings with hot chocolate and light Jamaican fare.

Not only is this movie a great memory for me with my sister who I lost but it’s a movie about finding inner strength, hard work, challenges and hope. All which speaks to anyone who has ever fought to battle their own addictions, or to face each day after losing someone special to it. #overdoseawareness #stopthestigma #coolrunnings #peacebethejourney
