50 friends, $10 each is what it will take for me to reach my goal of raising $500 for the Human Development Center (HDC). HDC is giving me a Grandma's Half Marathon entry and in exchange I am raising money for and awareness about mental health. For every friend that donates $10, I will post on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram a fact about mental health along with a thank you shout out for your donation.
My Story: In February of 2016 I was not happy with my own personal health and wellness. I had just given birth that fall to my third child. Raising three kids, being a graduate student, working full time and having a part time music career is a lot for a person to tackle. I have anxiety and I was not managing my symptoms well. I knew that by watching what I ate, getting more sleep and making time to work out, I could lose weight and feel great. In 8 months I have lost 17 lbs. In June, I will be running my first half marathon!
Why HDC: I have chosen HDC as the charity to run for because I believe in the work they do. Our community is a better place because of the services they provide. Mental health is something near and dear to my heart. My father died of suicide in 2006. Many of my family members suffer, and have suffered, from mental illness and substance abuse. I myself suffer from anxiety. I have used music to help with my grieving process. While I am working on writing a new album and putting together plans to record it, the average person doesn’t have this type of outlet to help them process. They use more conventional methods, like meeting with a therapist at the Human Development Center.
