Welcome to the 5K for Mental Health: Self Care - Be Aware
This annual event is led by the Latah Alliance on Mental Illness and the Disability Action Center.
Free T-shirt and light-up shoe laces after registering. Registration gifts can be picked up after finishing the 5K at the mall.
We have completed our gathering on May 11th.
Pick up your T-shirts and registration prizes at that time.
We are so excited to bring the 5K for Mental Health back IN PERSON for 2023. We appreciate everyone who has participated virtually in previous years and still invite you to do the same throughout the month of May.

We are hoping to raise $5,000 to ensure we can continue to break the mental health stigma that leaves so many people silently suffering. Please consider a gift of $5.00 or more to ensure we can keep working towards advancing the well-being and recovery of persons who have mental illnesses and their families within our communities. You can make a donation to the 5k for Mental Health here: https://www.lamiadvocacy.org/
**For WSU students** Your participation of walking/running/biking in the 5K does not meet the criteria for tracking community service hours. We encourage you to participate to be an active citizen and promote the destigmatization of mental health!
