Activities: Virtual race, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon

June is PTSD Awareness Month. Help us bring awareness and raise funds for charities that provide mental health services, by participating in our virtual run/walk that you can do from anywhere! 

This race benefits the following PTSD based non-profits:

  • Healing TREE (Trauma Resources, Education & Entertainment) advocates healing from abuse and trauma rather than coping with the symptoms, in order to transform lives and, ultimately, society. We achieve this by providing trauma-focused resources and education and by producing and partnering with relevant film, television, and theatre, empowering the social change necessary to create a healing movement.

  • Headstrong provides at no expense, confidential and stigma-free mental health treatment for military members, veterans, and their families regardless of service era or discharge.
