Pillars of Wellness is hosting its second annual 5K/2K event to provide mental health awareness in the community. Pillars is a mental health practice that serves Lake and Porter Counties in Northwest, Indiana. As a company, we aim to provide a comfortable and empowering workplace for our Pillars' staff knowing that only in taking care of our team, can we truly provide health and healing to those we serve. Clinically, we focus on identifying the ideal fit between client and clinician. We aim to ensure clients, clinicians, and the entire Pillars' team is in their ideal place to succeed.

This year we are partnering with a non-for-profit agency, Erin's House for Grieving Children, who provide a safe, nurturing, and comfortable environment for children to process their grief. Erin's house provides services such as peer-support programs, classroom companions, summer programs, camps/retreats, and phone support for children and families navigating a loss.

This year will be a color run!

We will lightly toss colored chalk as you navigate the course. Feel welcome to run or walk the 5K or 2K options. Our 5K will be a timed race, and our 2K will be non-timed. Perfect for seasoned runners, those looking to start their race journey, or those who want to get your steps in and support a great nonprofit! Please remember to wear clothes you don't mind making colorful!
