We're on a mission to make the world a better place for adults and children living with challenges and/or illness related to their mental health.
Join our movement and make mental health a priority in YOUR community! We encourage families to run/walk together and to make that easy, kids 12 and under participate for free.
Funds raised through this flagship event are utilized to:
- Increase awareness of ill mental health
- Reduce stigma
- Address the shortage of affordable care
- Emphasize the importance of physical exercise and emotional wellness in maintaining mental health and overall wellbeing
- Fund research
- Focus on underserved communities such as veterans, minorities and those suffering from addiction
Brain Science & Physical Activity
Our newest initiative, Why Move? brings together brain science and physical activity, in the best possible ways. Why Move? is piloting a new approach that sees kids developing a habit of being more active while learning about their brain and emotions. Couple that knowledge with strategies for developing mindfulness, kindness, and compassion towards others, and you’ve forged a stronger foundation for a healthy life. We’re bringing the Why Move? initiative to 15 states in 2023, for a two-year pilot program. Our dream of bringing Why Move? to every school district in the nation is a long-term goal. One of our partners in Why Move? is Fit Kids.
