Firefighters and athletes team up on mental health initiatives

Olympic snowboarder Mercedes Nicoll and Paralympic swimmer Nathan Clement hit the wall Thursday at the District of North Vancouver's firefighter training centre. 

The elite athletes then shared their experiences around mental health at the 2nd Annual Time To Talk event hosted by the District of North Vancouver Firefighters Charitable Society last night at the Blueshore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts at Capilano University.

The society will also hold their fourth annual Barn Burner charity fundraising concert Saturday, June 8 at the Pipe Shop Venue at the Shipyards. Vancouver's Rich Hope and his Evil Doers will headline the concert along with Barney Bentall and Odds. Proceeds from the two events benefit Jack.org, a group that provides mental health services and support to youth across Canada.
