Mental Health Awareness Night at Isotopes Park

We were able to spark so many conversations with all the green ribbons we handed out during the Isotopes game on May 29th (Mental Health Awareness Night)! We were thrilled with how many people in the community stopped by our booth to discuss mental health, find resources, and learn how to get involved.

The Green Ribbon campaign aims to promote open conversations regarding mental health and to challenge the stigmas that come with it.

But the fund raising doesn’t end with the walk. The closeout for this year is the end of June, so please, if you didn’t have a chance to attend the Walk, you can still click the button below and support the team of your choice!

There were hot air balloons, a climbing wall and even a car show with about 40 cars participating! Of course there were lots of tables from providers and partners in our community with loads of information about resources. Thanks to all who participated and volunteered to make this year’s walk a great success. Special thanks to Sharon Orchard, this year’sWalk Manager! Great job, Sharon!
