Our FIRST Annual Mental Health Awareness Charity 5K will is POSTPONED TO SUNDAY, 9/13/2020 at 9:00 a.m.. The event will take place at the Community Park in North Brunswick, NJ and ALL PROCEEDS go to the Minding Your Mind Organization (https://mindingyourmind.org/).  This will be a timed event for all Runners.  

Minding Your Mind is dedicated to ending stigma and destructive behaviors associated with mental health issues, moving away from crisis-based response to prevention through education.  Their primary aim is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens young adults, and their parents, teachers, and school administrators. Their programs provide information regarding the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders, in addition to stressing that they are treatable and treatment is available. 

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and the 2nd leading cause between the ages of 10-34.  In a 16-year span, suicide rates have risen 31%.  Depression, a leading cause of suicide, rose 60% between the ages of 14 to 17 and 41% between the ages of 12 and 13. 

Our mission through this event is bringing awareness to this crucial topic devastating families and communities. 

Please support us in eliminating the stigma towards mental health and help educate our community on the psychological disorders shattering our society.
