difd heart

October 13, 2012, Victoria, BC – Ashley Gilbank is a young woman who has been rollerbalding across Canada to raise awareness and funds for youth mental health and to draw attention to the issues around teen suicide.  She will be completing her journey on Monday October 15th at 1:00 pm at the Mile 0 Marker in Beacon Hill Park and would love to see you there.

Ashley started her journey in Newfoundland and her goal is to raise $60,000 to support youth mental health. All the funds raised will be donated to D.I.F.D. (Do It For Daron).  D.I.F.D. is a youth-driven initiative focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health.

Created by friends and family of Daron Richardson who lost her life to suicide at the young age of 14, D.I.F.D. is inspired by hope for a future where young people will reach out for help without fear or shame. D.I.F.D. supports programs and initiatives aimed at transforming youth mental health.
