We are pleased to invite you to our 2nd Annual charity awareness event Stigma Stomp Day hosted by the Bipolar Disorder Society of BC, Bipolar Babe Project.
The event consists of hosting hundreds of Victoria’s community in Centennial Square, downtown on Friday June 14, 2013 from 12-3pm.
The event celebrates a day free of stigma. Stigma consists of false stereotypes that perpetuate unwarranted fears and discrimination amongst society. Labels such as homeless, addicted, mentally ill, among many others. The day will host inspirational speakers such as Jamie, a 17 year old girl that lives with bipolar disorder. We will also be hosting 15 community partner information booths. An important component of the day is providing the community with 200 Stigma Stomp t-shirts, which symbolizes unity and acceptance of all people despite the effect that stigma has on all. We are all equal and we are all amazing!
Food vendors will be on-site and KOOL FM and CFAX are media sponsors. T-shirt sponsors include: Wynona Wensley from Be Free Health www.feelfreebefree.com, Certified Rolfer & Source Point Therapy. Kirby's Source for Sports and Saunders Subaru have also jumped on board for sponsorship!
Rolfing Structural Intergration body work available for $2 a minute with all proceeds going to the Bipolar Disorder Society of BC. 🙂
