​“The Defeat Depression Campaign has become a successful annual event not only in supporting the financial health of our peer-run organization, NISA/Northern Initiative for Social Action, but also in getting our members actively involved in the campaign in soliciting donations, advocating throughout the community on the benefits of registering for the Walk/Run, as well as setting and meeting personal goals in walking/running the event itself."

​“The Defeat Depression Walk/Run is not just a walk and not just a run, but it is a movement. It is a movement towards changing the lives of individuals who feel isolated in their own community due to the stigma and discrimination they face when it comes to their mental well-being.  It is a movement to recognize the strength that comes from a community who chooses to stand together on issues that matter most.”
