Our Community

We find it interesting to ask our friends/models..why? What is their personal "why" they have volunteered their time and energy to participate in our upcoming fashion show "Runway to Wellness". We invite you to read Genevieve's "WHY"!

" Mental health, I call it the silent disease...It has no gender or race. Anyone can be affected by it. If not you, then look around, someone close to you is probably suffering from a mental illness. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, in any given year in Canada, 1 in 5 people experience a mental health problem or illness.

Most likely, they suffer in silence, afraid to be judged and scared of what others may say. Would you be able to recognize the signs and symptoms or detect their silent cries for help? This is why it is important to talk about mental illness, break down the stigmas and support mental health awareness.

Runway to Wellness is a fun, fashion event highlighting Canadian designers clothing from my favourite Belleville store, The Dressing Room. Although we are all here to enjoy a fashion show, more importantly we are here to raise funds to support local programs that enhance mental wellness of those in our community. I am proud to volunteer as a model and support this fabulous cause!

Our models are gearing up and preparing to strut their stuff on Sunday May 5th on the "Runway to Wellness" in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association-Hastings Prince Edward! 95.5 Hits FM Morning Co-Host Charity Brown shares with us her "why" and reasons for participating in this exciting event!

"I wanted to be a part of this event because mental health is so very important, much more than people realize. Mental health can affect every aspect of a person’s life, both personal and professional. And yet there is still such stigma attached to those who struggle or admit to needing help in maintaining their mental health and wellness. People need to be made aware and educated. If I can help in some small way in raising money or bringing awareness, that is something I want to be a part of." Charity Brown.
