Mental Health Matters 5K
September 17, 2023 @ 7:30 AM - 10:00 AM
The Mental Health Matters 5K run and walk was created in an effort to decrease stigma around mental health challenges, encourage reaching out for help, and honor those who have died by suicide. The race is hosted by Foundation 2 Crisis Services and led by community volunteer Tim Vipond.
We know the stigma of mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis can lead to reluctance to seek help or treatment or prevent family, friends, and others from understanding the challenges that exist.
The event was started in honor of Jeff Vipond, who died by suicide in 2018, and others who have struggled with mental health or died by suicide.
All proceeds support Foundation 2 Crisis Services’ mission to be a trusted support when life gets tough for all people, any time, every time.
