Be the Light Campaign's "Walk for Light" Virtual 5K

Sat May 14 - Sun May 15 Columbus, OH 43215 US

Studio 149
Columbus, OH US 43215


This 5K is virtual, please walk/run at home, your favorite park, or wherever you are!

The month of May is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. It is a time to raise awareness and support for those who have struggled with mental health and provide an opportunity to break the stigmas. Walking or running, whether inside or out, has been shown to improve a person's overall mental wellness. It boosts our ability to be mindful and present. We would love to invite you to find a moment to be mindful wherever you are. 

Please join us for our first annual virtual 5k walk/run! We chose to make this event virtual so that anyone can participate regardless if you are in Columbus, Ohio or anywhere across the U.S.! Enjoy the event at home, in your favorite park, alone, or with loved ones. Our virtual 5K takes place over two days so that you can do this event at your convenience. 

Be The Light Campaign's mission is to empower and encourage Mental Health Warriors and Allies. We promote mental well-being in our communities through conversations, stories, resources and programs. We are based out of Columbus, Ohio but our network spreads across the country. Thank you to our sponsor, Wild Hope Therapy, for supporting this race and helping to alleviate the overhead costs of running this event. Wild Hope's sponsorship will allow all donations to go directly to our mission.
