APA's 5K: Run, Walk or Roll

Benefitting APA Foundation's Moore Equity in Mental Health Community Grants Initiative

The American Psychiatric Association is excited to welcome you to our second annual Moore Equity in Mental Health 5K Run, Walk & Roll, set for Saturday, July 9, 2022.

The inaugural event helped raise more than $75,000 to support mental health equity for young people of color, while promoting awareness and education about this imperative issue. We thank everyone who participated last year and look forward to our 2022 goal to raise $100,000.

Saturday, July 9, 2022
Run, walk, and roll to help individuals and organizations that support awareness programs and provide services to improve the mental health of young people of color. 
 
IPS will be participating by having 6 locations throughout the state of Illinois for members and their friends and families to meet up and walk together.  You can also choose to walk in your own community with family and friends if you are not able to make it to a group location.
