White, 34, raced in Englishtown, NJ last Saturday.
The doctoral student in clinical psychology at the University of Manitoba was racing to raise awareness of mental health — specifically the stigma placed on those with mental health issues, and a lack of access to services.
"This obstacle course that I'm running is like a perfect parallel for what people in Canada have to endure to get mental health services, it's just obstacle after obstacle," he said.
White, who serves on the board of the Manitoba Psychological Society, started the Mind Your Mental Health campaign to align with his Tough Mudder race.
