Meet some of our fundraisers
We have hundreds of people every year set themselves a goal of running their first quarter-marathon, half-marathon or full marathon. They dedicate their race to a cause that is close to them. That being mental health.
"This cause is one dear to my heart. Everyone knows someone impacted
"I am passionate about improving the awareness around Mental Health, and in turn encourage those who find themselves in need of help to ask for it"
Show your sweat for mental health!
Raise $200 and we'll post you out a 'I'm sweating for mental health' t-shirt to rock in the marathon. If you see another person with one on, slap em' a high five or wave hello.
