Why be involved?
The event is spearheaded by Jennifer Gray, an avid runner, because simply mental health issues have impacted her family, and now raising awareness and stopping the stigma are important to her. Jennifer wants people to know that there are options and resources available. They don’t have to lose hope and quit.
