We are champions for the mental wellbeing of those in the Canadian agriculture industry and are changing the culture of Agriculture to one where all are encouraged, supported and empowered to take care of their mental wellbeing.
Agriculture is an industry with a foundation of deep rural roots, hard work, resilience, strength and community. In order to uphold that image, those traits can also be the industry’s weakness as they become barriers for speaking up and seeking help. Those in the Canadian agriculture industry are among the most vulnerable when it comes to mental health issues. Stress, anxiety, depression, emotional exhaustion and burnout are all high in the industry. By collaborating with the entire industry and those working to address the state of mental health in Agriculture, we can and will make a substantial impact!


Who can join?

Journey 5km is for anyone and everyone – whether you work in agriculture or not. We encourage you to engage friends, family and coworkers!

What does it involve?

Record your journey as you prepare and complete a 5km walk, jog or run. It’s as competitive as you want it to be.

Where does it take place?

Journey 5km is a virtual event, so you can participate from anywhere (and in any way) that works for you. Then track your progress on Instagram using #WinFieldJourneyForAg.

When does it happen?

The event runs from April 27 to May 4, 2023.

Why participate?

Journey 5km raises money and awareness to support mental health in agriculture. Plus, exercise is great for your own mental health!
