ORGANIZER: Imagine Thriving
EVENT: Fargo Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
I'm running the Fargo Half Marathon this year for Imagine Thriving. I'm a physician assistant and have children and adolescents telling me that they want to hurt themselves, that they can't quit crying, that they are so anxious they don't want to go to school, that they feel alone. These kids have pressures that we didn't back in our day; technology, social media, dual working parents... We need to give these families tools to help raise, not just physically healthy kids, but mentally and emotionally stable kids who can thrive. We are raising our kids, our future, together as a community.
Here's the facts:
* 1 in 10 Fargo high school student have attempted suicide.
* 1 in 4 of these students is struggling with depression and/or anxiety.
* All donations stay local and are TAX DEDUCTABLE.
* THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT THESE KIDS!
Because of your support, Imagine Thriving is able to provide access to mental health care by funding school district mental health professionals, financial support for families in need and mental health education to students, parents and the greater community. Any donation, large or small, stays local and will change someone's life.
