All parents are aware of the challenges faced by their kids in today’s world. Non-stop social media and increased competition in sports and academics have compounded the traditional sources of angst. Peer pressure and the need to fit in seem all the more intense and seemingly inescapable.
Minding Your Mind is an incredible organization that provides support to adolescents and teens that struggle with mental health issues. Working closely with middle and high schools and colleges, its free outreach program seeks to educate and address the negative connotations and feelings of loneliness and not belonging that often go hand in hand with mental health issues. Through its counseling and support network, kids are able to develop confidence and an understanding of themselves. They build the social and coping skills to succeed. I strongly encourage you to visit their website: https://mindingyourmind.org
We are very excited to be running the NYC Marathon as part of the Minding Your Mind team.
We are ready to run our asses off to raise money for Minding Your Mind. We would truly appreciate your generous support.
Thank you. Mike & Richard
