Glow Themed 5K in Lakewood to Benefits Local Suicide Prevention Efforts
LAKEWOOD, N.Y.: – Staying active and prioritizing our mental health is vital to improving our overall wellness. To get our bodies and minds moving, The Suicide Prevention Alliance of Chautauqua County is proud to announce its annual Glow Your Mind 5K Run/Walk that will take place virtually on August 21, 2021.
To register for the event, visit preventsuicidechq.com or visit the Suicide Prevention Alliance Facebook page to find course details and additional information. All of the proceeds raised by the event stay local for suicide prevention efforts in Chautauqua County.
The glow run is a collaboration of the Suicide Prevention Alliance of Chautauqua County, Chautauqua Tapestry and Chautauqua County Department of Mental Hygiene. The partnership came out of the groups’ common goal to generate awareness that mental wellness and physical wellness are of equal importance in everyone’s lives.
“We know how important physical movement can be in our journey of mental wellness,” said Carri Raynor, Coordinator for the Alliance. “We may not be gathering this year, but we wanted to motivate our community to get moving with this fun annual event.”
Additional sponsors include Combat Addiction CHQ, Media One and Fresh Press Studios.
