The WALK OF HOPE + 5K RUN was a great success!

Thank you to all who came out for our second annual Walk of Hope + 5K Run to Defeat Depression on Saturday in Southampton.  It was a huge success that raised over $150,000 for advanced depression research! 

Following the race, Audrey Gruss presented Ashley Gilbertson best time in the Adult Male category, and Tara Farrell for best time in the Adult Female category.  Ian Fox won for the best youth male, and Caroline Clagne won for best youth female. 

Mrs.Gruss also presented Kim Heirston-Evans with the Top Individual Fundraiser award, and Arthur Dunnam with the Top Fundraising Team Captain award.  They hit their fundraising targets out of the ball park and they deserve a huge round of applause.

Timing results are available here through this link.
