Welcome to Team Hannah!
We invite you to support one of the amazing athletes who are fundraising for Hannah’s House by running or walking in the 7th Annual Mad Marathon on July 9th. Hannah's House is a community supported, nonprofit mental health and resource center with offices located in Waitsfield and Waterbury, Vermont. All of the funds raised by Team Hannah will help provide mental health services to our rural area in Central Vermont.
Hannah’s House was founded in 2010 by the family and friends of Hannah Bedford, a young adult who lost her battle with mental illness in 2009. They wanted to provide a much-needed mental health resource in the Mad River Valley, help reduce stigma, provide assistance for those unable to pay, and help provide education for children, teens and adults.
Today Hannah’s House sponsors four licensed therapists, an executive director and provides accessible mental health care in two locations. We collaborate with local schools, help sponsor numerous educational events, and foster alternative therapies including neurofeedback brain training. Our counselors provide group sessions and individual counseling at Harwood Union Junior High and High Schools.
The athletes of Team Hannah, our volunteers and our donors have been a vital part of this success story since the first Mad Marathon fundraiser in 2010. Our runners’ dedication and willingness to fundraise for Hannah’s House by running in a very challenging marathon is inspiring to us all, along with your generosity in supporting their efforts. You all give us wings and make it possible for us to provide mental health services to our community.
We dedicate this run to Hannah and the individuals and families who struggle mentally and emotionally. Life is a marathon; we honor your bravery and courage and we are very grateful to those who run and support the run for mental health.
