Please join us for our First Annual Run 4 Bee 5k! In hopes of holding a live event, we know our options are limited so we are having our run go virtual for this year. We hope to make this a live event starting in 2022 and making this an annual tradition.
Runners will be able to run starting April 24-May 2, 2021. You may run or walk anywhere you like. You may choose a course of your liking near your home, a track, or your treadmill. We will be having a VirtuReal course set up at the Utica Switchbacks that runners and walkers can choose from as well as their course. On this course, there will be signs to make the event interactive as we raise awareness.
A memorial will take place on May 1st at 12 PM EST at the Utica Switchbacks in memory of Bianca and teens we have lost to suicide.
Our mission is to promote the awareness of social health and wellness in adolescents and young adults under the age of 24. We want to assist all who have been impacted by mental health conditions such as teen suicide, anxiety, depression, bullying, and other social health factors. Our goal is to implement educational programs in our school systems and other markets that have a target/focus on youth mental health.
T-shirts ordered after 4/13/21 will be mailed to the address on your registration during the first couple weeks of May.
