Join Strides Against Stigma to raise awareness of depressive disorders and build a community that erases the stigma of depression.
Waltham, Massachusetts (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
Families for Depression Awareness (FFDA) is proud to announce that Trenni Kusnierek of Comcast SportsNet New England will emcee the program during Strides Against Stigma, FFDA’s second annual stride-a-thon event. Strides Against Stigma will be held on April 27, 2013 at 10 a.m. at Boston University's Nickerson Field. Kusnierek has worked in the sports journalism field since 2000 and has had the opportunity to cover major sporting events including the World Series and the Super Bowl.
Kusnierek’s career has led her around the country and back again — but what many do not know is that she also suffers from depression. Thanks to treatment and a strong support network, Kusnierek continues to thrive in both her personal and professional life.
“It is really brave for Trenni—a public figure—to be open about her history with depression,” says Julie Totten, president of Families for Depression Awareness. “She’s helping to shine a light on the fact that people from all walks of life can be affected by mental health conditions.”
Strides Against Stigma is an empowering and entertaining stride-a-thon to raise awareness of depressive disorders and build a community that erases the stigma of depression. Participants will receive a t-shirt, lunch, and a pedometer to count their strides as they take part in educational and fun activities.
