It’s Race Weekend!
I’m headed to NYC tomorrow, October 31, 2015 (Halloween) to run the TCS New York City Marathon this Sunday, November 1, 2015.
The New York City Marathon (My second marathon) is extra special because I am running on behalf of a non-profit organization, the Minding Your Mind Foundation.
My good friend, Wendi Platt is a board member with Minding Your Mind and she asked me to run for MYM last summer and here I am today preparing to run 26.2 miles for my family members, friends and people touched by mental illness.
I am Blessed to Make a Difference and determined to help educate more people about mental illness.
Join my Team Today. Your tax-deductible donation will go a long way in educating families about what they can do to help someone touched by mental illness.
One in five. One in five teenagers will suffer anxiety, depression, self-harm, substance abuse or suicidal ideation.
One. It only takes one person to make a difference. You can “be the one” to make a difference by supporting me and Minding Your Mind.
Minding Your Mind’s (MYM) primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers and school administrators. MYM’s goal is to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues. Treatment is available, yet only 3 out of 10 individuals needing help actually seek help. Minding Your Mind Programs move away from crisis based response to prevention through education.
