Make the Mind & Body Connection!

Staying active can benefit many aspects of your health and even prevent physical and mental health symptoms from worsening. It’s important to incorporate exercise daily to ensure your mind and body are healthy.


Exercising Benefits Nearly All Aspects of a Person’s Health

In addition to helping control weight, it can improve the chances of living longer, the strength of bones and muscles, and your mental health.

Just 1 hour of exercise a week is related to lower mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders.

Race Beneficiary: Mental Health America of the Palm Beaches

Proceeds from the Mind & Body Connection 5K will support our mission to promote mental health and create a supportive community where all people can flourish!
