Come out and take control of physical and mental health while also breaking the stigma surrounding mental illness. Still I Run is a community where people can share their experience of dealing with mental illness through physical activity. 1 in 5 Americans will experience some type of mental health condition in any given year. Chances are that if you don’t have a mental illness yourself, you may know someone that does. Mental health illnesses can affect anyone and does not discriminate. Still I Run is a community looking to erase the stigma by participating in the conversation about mental health. If we don’t talk about it because we feel ashamed, then we continue to suffer alone and in silence. The money raised by this race will go directly to this group and help with several of their programs, such as: Starting Line Scholarships, Run Chapters, and development of the Mental Health Runner Program which will provide participants access to a mental health gym, a journal, and shoes.
