Welcome to my One in Five fundraising page!
We all know someone struggling with a mental illness (anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, PTSD, OCD, etc.); or maybe you struggle yourself. This June, I'll be participating at the One in Five Marathon Relay to benefit mental health initiatives.
Many of you know this school year I received a very unexpected last minute job change. The change was to teach in a regional program for high school students with emotional impairments. Before this experience I thought I understood mental illness. However my students have taught me a whole new level of empathy, compassion and understanding.
Last year I had the privilege of running with my children/family/friends. This year I will run along side many other individual runners. I'm lacing up now and accept the challenge.
You can help by supporting my fundraising efforts and make a tax-deductible donation. Join me on my journey to reaching my goal. Big or small, any amount helps in the fight for the one in five. Please click on the link below to donate.
Did you know that one in five adults suffer with some form of mental illness? That's 42.5 million people in the United States alone.
