Description

According to the American Psychiatric Association (APA), an overwhelming 87 percent of Americans think gun violence is a public health threat. It's not hard to understand why. People who are impacted by gun violence may experience stress, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The effects of this harm extend not just to survivors but also to witnesses, bystanders, neighbors, and all those who love them.

We want to help bring awareness to gun safety and raise funds for Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in America who is making a difference. Please join us in this virtual run/walk that you can do from anywhere and be apart of the solution!
