BENEFITING: Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation
EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
The Balanced Mind Foundation (aka the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation) guides families raising children with mood disorders to the answers, support, and stability they seek. It is a much needed resource for children who face tremendous challenges in their lives. It is also a life line for their families, just as running has been a life line for me. Through running, I have found a source of strength, clarity, and pride that makes me a better parent and helps me as I guide my children on their own paths toward a balanced mind. It is my hope that this journey to the finish line will not only strengthen my own mind, body, and spirit, but will, through your donations, bring a little light to families dealing with mental illness.
