Description

Get ready for an explosion of color during Walking for the Health of It-In Color 5k run/walk! Be sure to wear a white tshirt and we'll make sure you leave covered in color!

This is our 4th annual 5K Run & 1 mile Memory Walk. We are walking to raise awareness for mental health issues including the reduction of stigma and the promotion of positive support, healthy habits & suicide prevention. Mental illness affects 1 in 4 people every year, meaning that nearly every family in our community is affected.
