Welcome to my One in Five fundraising page!
I've accepted the challenge to lace up with some of my AQXC 'sole sisters' and run a marathon relay in June to benefit mental health initiatives - and now, I need your support.
Did you know that 1 in 5 adults suffer with some form of mental illness? That's 42.5 million people in the US alone. Being active in the community on several different levels, I have met many who have dealt with and continue to deal with the countless adversities mental illness can bring about.
I have set a personal fundraising goal. Donations are tax deductible, and the work supported by your donation is life changing. Big or small, any amount helps in the fight for the 1 in 5.
The team I am a part of does run for the 1 in 5 dealing with a mental illness, but we also run for the 1 in 5 athletes who suffer from an eating disorder. We run for those who run in silence. My former AQ teammate, Rachael Steil, is the writer and founder of Running in Silence. Rachael has worked tirelessly over the years to shed light on the 1 in 5 athletes who struggle with the monstrous battle of an eating disorder, along with breaking misconceptions and raising awareness. I encourage you to learn more by checking out her amazing work & mission: https://www.runninginsilence.com/.
Thank you for your consideration!
