About The Ridge Road Run
 

In 2018, seven students from three local high schools: Red Bank Regional High School (RBR), Red Bank Catholic (RBC) and Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) came together to form the Ridge Road Run 5K for Suicide Prevention to raise funds for mental health programs and to increase awareness about mental health struggles and suicide. They had many things in common but two main things stood out:  The three high schools are located on or close to Ridge Road and all of them had been impacted by a tragic death by suicide.  Together they decided to put their school rivalries aside and created the Ridge Road Run 5K for Suicide Prevention.  The 2019 Ridge Road Run, supported the initial goal with students from each high school working together to continue raising funds and awareness to support their schools and community. The event was again well received and supported the efforts to bring awareness and suicide prevention initiatives to all three high schools.  
The Ridge Road Run has continued even during the onset of a global pandemic. The Race was held as a virtual run for 2020 and 2021 and received continued support from the schools’ communities and the broader community.  The Covid 19 global pandemic has brought on an entirely new set of mental health challenges for our students and many individuals in our community and around the world.  Unfortunately, there has been a 50% increase in suicide and an increase in individuals struggling with mental health diagnosis. We want to ensure our communities have the support and services to address these needs.  Proceeds will continue to be used for suicide prevention education, mental health/wellness initiatives and to raise awareness of suicide and mental health struggles benefitting students at  
Red Bank Catholic (RBC), Red Bank Regional (RBR), and Rumson-Fair Haven (RFH) High Schools. 
Since the inaugural race, funds raised have been awarded to each of the three High Schools and the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County to support awareness of mental health struggles and suicide.

We are proud to report that The Ridge Road Run Ambassador program was created during the 2020-2021 school year at each High School. Collectively we have over 40 student Ridge Road Run Ambassadors  working  to “end the stigma” in their schools, applying for grant money from the race, promoting the race and disseminating information to their schools and greater community.
