If you tune into The 570MorningNews you know Martin Bauman’s voice. He’s our Morning Reporter. We have him out getting your take on the hot topics of the day… or reporting live from a crime scene.
He’s now lending his voice to a very big cause, and one that is very close to his heart : Mental Health Awareness.
Martin is packing up and hitting the road in June. He is cycling across Canada this summer in support of Defeat Depression.
Funds raised will support the Waterloo Wellington Dufferin branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association.
Martin says he’s seen so many people dear to him suffer in silence.
” I’ve felt the loss of suicide in my family. I’ve also seen tremendous strength in friends and family opening up and sharing their journeys — strength which inspires my own journey over the next few months.”
Help Martin #KeepPushing.
