City of Windsor and University of Windsor Kick Off Wellness Wednesdays by Showing Sole!

The City of Windsor and the University of Windsor joined together today in support of the Downtown Core Partnership’s Wellness Wednesday event held at Charles Clark Square. To mark the official kick-off for 2018, participants were encouraged to wear teal green clothing or paint their shoes as part of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Windsor-Essex County Branch’s (CMHA-WECB) Sole Focus Project.

Walking Wednesdays started two years ago to encourage employees of Caesars Windsor and the City of Windsor to take a healthy fitness break during their work day. This weekly 1km walk happened every Wednesday throughout the spring and summer. Today, we welcome another partner to the program in the University of Windsor downtown campus, as they join us for this health and wellness initiative by engaging their faculty and staff. In addition this year, the City of Windsor Workplace Wellness Committee is challenging employees to “Get Loud for YOUR Mental Health.” Employees throughout the corporation are encouraged to get active and access nearby outdoor facilities and remotely upload photos to illustrate their participation (May through August).

“The health and wellbeing of our employees at the City of Windsor is an important component to our success and we believe that physical and mental health go hand-in-hand,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Edward Stanley said it best, ‘those who think there is not time for exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.’ Knowing that one in five Canadians will personally experience a mental illness during their lifetime, we are proud to work in partnership with the University of Windsor to take a stand for mental health in support of the Sole Focus Project and to bring much needed awareness and education about mental health to our employees and our community.”

“Our focus in this collaboration is to engage the downtown campus in fostering wellness for our faculty, staff and students by utilizing the downtown core and encouraging healthy activities,” said Dr. Vincent Georgie.

“The Sole Focus Project was launched in response to the community’s desire for education, training and information about mental health and wellness. We are delighted that it has been a resounding success. This is in large part due to the ongoing support and collaboration from partners such as the City of Windsor, University of Windsor and Caesars Windsor,” said CEO Claudia den Boer.

Representatives from CMHA-WECB were on-site today to assist in providing information about the Sole Focus Project. The Windsor Public Library Bookmobile “FRED” was also on display with resource materials and books made available for participants related to mental health education and information. The Walk is also a part of Mental Health Week that is happening across Canada May 8-14, 2018.
