Join us in our race to raise awareness and end the stigma behind mental health illnesses. Mental health illnesses are among the most stigmatized and under-appreciated medical conditions in the world today. Unfortunately, these debilitating conditions disproportionately affect those who are the most unable to afford expensive mental health treatments. Proceeds will go to the Helen-Ross-McNabb center, a nonprofit organization based in Knoxville, Tennessee that seeks to provide mental health care to individuals who would otherwise have no options.
The Run for Mental Health Awareness will be a 5K that will take place at 9 AM on Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 at the University of Tennessee, beginning on Pedestrian Walkway next to John C. Hodges Library. Parking will be available in the parking lot of Natalie L. Haslam Music Center (1741 Volunteer Blvd, Knoxville, TN 37916).
Registration is $25 and includes an event T-Shirt
