Run for Mental Health
Here’s your chance to run for mental health AND raise money for it at the same time! We invite you to join us and our friends, Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, for the 40th Annual Fifth Third River Bank Run in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Pine Rest is a wonderful organization that offers a TON of mental health services to people in Michigan and Iowa. This year, because Pine Rest is a charity partner for the Fifth Third River Bank Run, they will have their own racing team called Team PR Pacing. And guess what, we’ve been invited to join them this year!
If you’re free on Saturday, May 13, 2017, we hope you’ll want to toe the line with us as a team member!
If you would like to join the PR Pacing – Still I Run team, you are asked to raise $100 to support Pine Rest’s Patient Assistance Fund. 100% of the funds you raise will go towards this fund which provides mental health care to people in financial need. Your money will directly impact a person’s life for the better!
Perks to being a PR Pacing FundRACER!
