Athletics: CameronHelps Founder Running his 10th Mississauga Marathon

April 22, 2014
By

Mississauga, ON: David Harris, Founder and CEO of CameronHelps will be lining up at the 2014 Mississauga Marathon for his 10th consecutive year to reach his goal of $10,000 raised over 10 Mississauga Marathons. David is raising funds for CameronHelps through the 2014 Scotiabank Charity Challenge.

In 2005 David’s son, Cameron took his own life at the age of 19. “People grieve in different ways” Mr. Harris said. He took this as motivation to commit to two major goals. The first was to run 19 consecutive Marathons in Mississauga (one for each year of Cameron’s life), in memory of Cameron. The second was to help others.

“I appreciate all the support I’ve received over the years. It has truly been tremendous.” says David. “The Mississauga Marathon is very emotional for me as it is a time to reflect and celebrate my son’s life. Regardless of my result I will finish knowing that Cameron was with me every step of the way. Each one is an incredible experience” says David Harris.

“We here at Landmark Sport Group enthusiastically support CameronHelps and what David Harris has started. He has inspired many and turned a truly unfortunate event into one where David is committed to helping others” says Mississauga Marathon Race Director, Krystal Duz. “We hope that sharing David’s story will inspire runners and walkers to join him at the start line and bring awareness to everything CameronHelps stands for.”

David has also created a youth run program called Team Unbreakable. CameronHelps is demonstrating that physical activity (such as running) can help reduce depression and assist with mental health in young people. Team Unbreakable has grown to involve two race events, the Mississauga Marathon participation and they also host the Unbreakable Father’s Day 5K run/walk on Sunday, June 15th 2014.

Donations are welcome for David via his personal fundraising page found here or you can join David Harris and the CameronHelps team on Race Day, Sunday, May 4th.
