Show your support for the millions of people affected by anxiety, depression, PTSD, bi-polar disorder and other mental illnesses. These are REAL health conditions that have only been exacerbated by COVID-related stress, grief, and loneliness. Untreated mental illness can contribute to physical health problems, substance abuse, disability, and even death. May is National Mental Health Month. Please join us for the Virtual MOM Race for Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention on Saturday, May 1, 2021. If you cannot participate in the flagship event of 5/1, that's OK. There are 31 days and countless ways to complete your DIY fitness challenges. Your virtual MOM Race could be a run, walk, bike ride, hike, yoga in the park, or ANYTHING that gets your outside for 30 minutes of exercise. So register today and join the MOM movement!
