Who Is Zach
A shy, yet vibrant Canadian high school student from Barrie, Ontario who wears his heart on his sleeve. He is a passionate and driven mental health advocate who is on a mission to create change and disrupt the status quo when it comes to the treatment of mental health.
At the age of 13, Zach set out on his first mission where he biked, ran and walked from Barrie to Ottawa in an effort to raise awareness and funds for youth mental health. To date, Zach has raised over $170,000 and has had the opportunity to meet with our Prime Minister and many other dignitaries to ask that our leaders make Youth Mental Health a priority. He’s also high-fived thousands of kids across our province and created countless important conversations.
