I've mentioned before that I'm running the MOM 5k on Saturday, May 3rd in Royal Oak. The 5k is to raise money for mental health awareness and suicide prevention. The proceeds go to four charities: The University of Michigan depression center, KnowResolve, Common Ground and The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
I'm running it for my two uncles that I lost to suicide as well as my Mom who is dealing with a mental illness. For more about why I'm running here's my post about it. I heard about this race right after my Uncle passed away this year and it seemed like the best way to honor him.
If you are in the area and want to run it with me here's the information you'll need to register for my team when you sign up:
1.) What is your team name? Angela and Cailtin
2.) Who is your team captain? Angela Zeiger
3.) What category best describes your team? Friends/Family
Online registration can be completed here. Online registration closes on April 27th so there's only a few days left to sign up! There is no same day registration this year. If you want to run please sign up soon!
If you don't live in the area but would like to support the cause, my fundraising website can be found here. I truly appreciate every dollar donated. If the money raised can help one person overcome their mental illness or save one person from committing suicide then it's all worth it!
This was a lot of information with very few pictures so here's one of Stormy to lighten the mood.
