Description

Please join us for the fifth annual eRace the Stigma 5k and 1 mile run/walk! Our purpose is to raise mental health awareness, provide support and education to those in our community suffering from mental illness and/or addiction, and raise funds for families/individuals in crisis and/or local organizations who provide treatment. We have again partnered with the City of Salisbury to bring the Mental Health Expo, and will have many of our community partners on hand to provide information and support to those in need.
