UNBREAKABLE. This one word simply describes what we want to achieve for youth who live with mental illness and depression. To give them the resources and confidence to lead meaningful and productive lives. So they can feel “unbreakable.”
CameronHelps was inspired by a young woman who described to us how she felt when she was running. In her battle against depression and mental illness, she said the energy and the empowerment she received through her run-group therapy program made her feel unbreakable. See the Unbreakable video.
Team Unbreakable is the name we use for our run programs. We are using this name to brand the program because we believe it will inspire all who run as part of Team Unbreakable. Team Unbreakable programs will work with youth to show them that physical exercise can help them cope with their underlying conditions and raise awareness of teen mental health issues.

In 2012, we renamed our annual Find a Way Father’s Day 5k run, the Unbreakable Father’s Day 5K. As well, there are additional running events in the Team Unbreakable Running Series like the upcoming Unbreakable Bold and Cold 5k.
