The GRAHAM (Green Route Aiding Healthy Adaptation and Mitigation) is SOA's awareness-raising walk and the successor for Canada to Key West. Its name is a tribute to Graham Alexander, who was passionate about the outdoors and its benefits regarding inner peace and mental health. The GRAHAM emphasizes how an accessible, healthy outdoors helps people of all ages and abilities stay healthy – both physically and mentally – and how community can support both mental health awareness and climate justice for people with and without disabilities.

The GRAHAM

Starting October 2023

In October 2023, Dr. Marcalee Alexander will walk the inaugural Green Route Aiding Healthy Adaptation and Mitigation (GRAHAM) to raise awareness about climate, health, disability, and especially the value of nature for physical and mental health. We'll be documenting this important event and using it to spread the word about these important topics. We hope you'll join, volunteer for the cause, or follow along online!
