I am looking forward to running my first marathon this November and am so proud to be representing Minding Your Mind. Minding Your Mind works with adolescents, their parents, and the community to better understand mental health and how to deal with mental illness. The negative stigma attached to mental illness can lead to someone not seeking help, whereas that same person would seek help for a physical ailment. Minding Your Mind educates people about the dangers of not seeking help and how to prevent stress and negative experiences / events from becoming debilitating.
While I'm really excited to run, nothing will make me more proud than raising money for such a good cause. I really appreciate any donation that you can make and will see you on November 5 at the finish line!
