When you are the light, your are sharing what is within you, you are guiding the way for others that may not be able to feel or see their own light that they already possess. When you share this light and awareness within yourself, either by a simple smile, compassion, and love, it comes back to you in abundance, and shines even brighter! 

“What we have we can only keep by sharing” 

Be The Light event was created to help bring awareness to the horrible disease called mental health, if we can ALL find our light within and share that light…what a Glow Party that would be!!! Our minds are a dark place to be, learning how to see the light and be the light can be an amazing awakening within, Let’s start with our students in our very own community. 

Pre-race activities will start at 4:30pm Students from various schools to include East, North, and Central High will have fun games set up on the field at East Forsyth High School, who will be hosting us!
With speakers from the schools to speak about what their school offers for mental health/wellness/suicide prevention. As well as The SAM Foundation.
Do not forget about our fun DJ and photo-booth along with Kona Ice and Super Taco food truck, East Forsyth High will have their band concession open so bring cash for snacks!
