Walk the Walk 2021
14th Annual Walk the Walk for Mental Health
The Community House14th Annual Walk the Walk for Mental Health will take place IN PERSON on Sunday, May 23, 2021 in a COVID-19 safe way! The Walk will give participants an opportunity to raise funds and advocate for access to mental health services in our community by walking a mile for mental health!
WHY SHOULD I WALK THIS YEAR?
Your support and coordinated efforts to fundraise with a team allows us to put 100% of your donations toward services for individuals and families without equitable access to mental health care in our community.
Attention, advocacy, and funding for mental health services is always needed, but as our community, nation and world continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, rates of anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation and self harm are at an all time high. The impact of COVID-19 is at an epidemic level for young people. Your participation and contribution will make a difference!
