We are a group of student-athletes that are trying to bring awareness to mental health specifically among athletes. We noticed there was a lot of support around mental health but nothing specific to athletes. Over the course of about a year, we have discussed ways that we can highlight athlete mental health as well as find ways to contribute to the cause.
We planned this 5k in order to spotlight athlete mental health by bringing together athletes and students in a fun way to raise attention and money to donate to a charity that specializes in athlete mental health called Athletes for Hope.
All of the money we make for bake sales and this 5k will be donated to Athletes for Hope. (Information provided by Campbell Davis – athletes for mental health club student leader)
We have 10 kids in the club along with what we are hoping to be around 30 volunteers to help with the race. I am estimating 100+ hours between club meetings, planning, leader meetings etc.
