5K Flight 2016 September 25


Thanks to the runners, walkers and friends who joined us at Jamaica Pond for our Fifth Annual 5K Flight: Peer Run/Walk for Mental Health Recovery & Wellness (flyer).

Our 2016 campaign to promote exercise as a tool in recovering and sustaining mental health & wellness was a success!   The 5K raised spirits and support for people with mental health, trauma, and addictions histories as we face challenges related to side effects from medications, poverty and lack of access to medical care.
