#Let’s Walk is a simple yet brilliant idea



If you like this, share it!

Ryan Langlois is a local singer-songwriter who’s come up with a really simple yet powerful concept. Go for a one hour walk with another person – and talk to one another.  The idea came out of Project Wild, a professional development program for country artists in the province.

Until October 4th, Ryan is walking everyday with someone different.  He reached out to me a few weeks ago and I thought why not!  I’ve admired Ryan’s command of the stage as front man for Boom Chukka Boys, and on his own in our studio recording one of his latest songs with just his acoustic guitar, his preferred way of performing these days.

“I just got kind of tired of the amount of effort it takes to be in a successful band.  Logistics, personalities, travel, not to mention having a family-  it’s just too much and I wanted to simplify,” said Langlois.

So off we walked into our beautiful Red Deer trail system to catch the remnants of the late afternoon sun and talk to one another.

Watch the video to learn more about Ryan and this amazingly simple and powerful approach to bringing awareness to mental health.


You can help Ryan reach his $1000 goal by clicking here.  Funds go directly to the Central Alberta region of the Canadian Mental Health Association.
