Whether you are running, walking, or can’t make the race, you can help raise funds for the John W. Brick Mental Health Foundation!
The mission of the John W. Brick Mental Health Foundation is to fund and promote evidence-based research on how different forms of holistic treatments - such as exercise, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle choices - can benefit mental health.
Every dollar raised goes directly toward research on how holistic treatments-such as exercise, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle choices-benefit mental health.
For example, The John W. Brick Mental Health Foundation is funding a two-year, $1.2 million, gold standard study at the University of California, San Francisco to determine how different forms of positive stress affect depression. We also bring fitness centers into psychiatric hospitals and community mental health clinics, and support programs for veterans to have free gym memberships and online support.
So many ways to raise funds to change the way we treat mental health!!
When you register to run the JWB 5K, run or walk the one-mile Family Fun Run/Walk, or register to run in your own neighborhood, school or gym, part of your fee goes to support the cause!
Maximize your impact! When you register you’ll be asked if you want to join a team, and you’ll also be asked to create your own fundraising page to raise funds from family and friends!
And, if you don’t have time or ability to run or walk on the April 26th, you can still be a champion!! Make a donation, or become a champion for mental health by becoming a Fundraiser (you’ll set up a fundraising page, and invite your friends to make donations in person, by email, or on your social media!)
