Raise money for Doc Wayne Youth Services
Our mission is to fuse sports and therapy to heal and strengthen at-risk youth. We deliver our sport-based mental health therapies to all youth between the ages of 5 and 18. Our approach intentionally breaks down barriers and the stigma associated with mental health in order to ensure mental health therapy is an option to more youth. Mental health support allows these children and teens to perform better academically and engage fully in their communities, growing in to strong leaders.
We are honored and excited to be a part of Falmouth Road Race.
Our team goal this year is $10,000.
Whether you are joining our team or supporting us with a donation, THANK YOU for helping a child in need.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
50% of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14. Approximately half of students aged 14 and up with a mental health challenge will drop out of school.
Please consider a donation because 80% of children living with a mental health challenge do not receive the support they need.
Every penny helps. For every $30 raised, Doc Wayne can provide a mental health session to a child in need.
Doc Wayne’s mission is to fuse sport and therapy to heal and strengthen at-risk youth.
WHO WE ARE
Doc Wayne is an award-winning non-profit headquartered in Boston. Doc Wayne has pioneered the approach to sports-based, mental health services that has catalyzed a movement. Our approach, accessible to clinicians, coaches, and educators around the world puts sport and play into practice using an evidence-informed curriculum incorporating social-emotional learning and life skills. Doc Wayne's flagship program in Boston called Chalk Talk® destigmatizes mental health. Our program is offered on a weekly basis in school systems and other youth-serving organizations. Our team leads weekly sessions with students, ages 5-18, designed to support them as they process and persevere through adversity. We believe that by supporting the Whole Child — on the field and off — we can develop more resilient learners and leaders.
WHO WE SERVE
Doc Wayne serves more than 500 students each week at 23 different sites in eastern Massachusetts. During the Spring of 2020, we led more than 2,000 sport-based group therapy telehealth sessions.
