Join us at the Madison Area YMCA's The Mind Matters 5k - Mentally Healthy, One Stride at a Time on Sunday, October 20 at Giralda Farms, Madison, NJ.  All proceeds raised through the 5K will benefit the Madison Area YMCA's Programs that Heal the Whole Person: Emotionally, Mentally and Physically.

 As mental health is rapidly becoming a leading issue across the nation, the YMCA has taken steps to establish the Community Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) to raise awareness and lower the stigma associated with mental illness. CMHI also focuses on reducing barriers to mental health care by providing community members with knowledge and skills to increase help-offering behaviors.

Project Community Pride of the Madison Area YMCA, a youth counseling program that has joined the Y as one of its community-based programs, is an important extension of youth development services for children, teens and their families throughout the Madison Area YMCA’s service area. The program was made possible through the collaboration of community leaders and the municipalities and school districts of the Chathams, Florham Park and Madison.

Paths to Wellness: The Madison Area YMCA offers enriching community wellness and health-enhancing programs including LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, a cancer survivors’ program; One Step, a multiple sclerosis program; Delay the Disease, a Parkinson’s disease wellness program; and Enhance®Fitness, an arthritis wellness program. The Y also has a range of youth sports, youth leadership programs, enrichment classes and adult fitness classes..

We hope to see you on RACE DAY!
