BENEFITING: Gilead Community Services, Inc.
This is not only my first Gilead race, it's my first ever race, period! I'm racing for the hopes and dreams of everyone who struggles with mental illness. It is often an invisible disease, and Gilead has proven to many that they are capable of helping those with mental illness overcome diversity! This fundraiser is in hopes of raising money to support Gilead in continuing to assist individuals like myself in getting through those times when all seems to be lost. Gilead is a nonprofit organization, not a state funded institution. Lastly, I want to mention that I am a client of Gilead, a consumer of mental health services, not a staff or part of administration.
