Walk the Walk for Mental Health 2024

Join us on Sunday, May 19th for the 18th Annual Walk the Walk for Mental Health! Let's #StepUp and #WalktheWalk to support equitable access to life-changing mental health services for children, young adults, and families in our community.

It's time to lace up your shoes and join us for the 2024 Walk the Walk for Mental Health! Let's have some fun while making a difference in our community.

The 18th Annual Walk the Walk for Mental Health is not your average walk, it is a one mile Color Walk that celebrates mental and physical wellness, access to mental health services, and ending the stigma associated with discussing mental health with friends, family and community. #StepUp #WalktheWalk #ColorWalk

This year, the Walk will begin with a health expo featuring local fitness and health and wellness vendors, a colorful opening ceremony, and end with a post-walk party including food trucks, games, face painting, music and more.
