The Do More Agriculture Foundation


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!

    Team Gowan got behind the importance of mental health for their team, rallied employees, friends and family, and returned this year with a fierce determination to maintain their status as the reigning Manufacturer Mojo champion, and they certainly delivered! With another year of record-breaking participation, Gowan secures the title and will proudly raise the trophy for the second consecutive year. Fantastic effort, Team Gowan! Runner-ups in this category who also dug in and worked hard were Team ADAMA and Team NexusBioAg. Way to go - a tip of the cap to you! Let’s all up our game next year!


    Congratulations to ifernandes and Brennen who recorded the longest 5km times in our app! We’re super proud of your determination and perseverance!

You captured the spirit of the event and we’re so glad you took part! 


    What an exhilarating race it was! The competition on the leaderboard was tight, with our finishers crossing the line in neck-and-neck fashion! A huge round of applause to our fastest lady, Alex Jewell, for taking the crown! And let's hear it for our speedy runner-up, Kate! On the men's side, congratulations to Neal Renwick for clinching the title of fastest man, with Andrew close behind as the runner-up. These participants trained hard, pushed their limits, and blazed through the 5km course with lightning speed. Kuddos Speed Demons, your speed makes our heart skip a beat (literally though)!
