Rockland 5k Run/Walk for Mental Health Awareness
Promote Mental Health Awareness and Break the Stigma!

Please join the Mental Health Association of Rockland (MHA of Rockland) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI Rockland) on Saturday, May 19, 2018 as we walk/run together to raise awareness about mental health, celebrate recovery from mental illness and break the stigma!  The proceeds of this event will fund our programs, provide education, create advocacy and support services for Rockland county residents living with mental health challenges and their families.

Experience the beauty of Rockland Lake State Park on a Spring day for an event the whole family can enjoy.  All participants will receive a t-shirt with registration fee and awards will be given to the overall top fundraiser, male and female runners as well as awards by age group.  There will be events for children to enjoy prior to and after the 5k Run/Walk.  Food, raffles, music, giveaways and a wellness area can be enjoyed by all!
