As we get ready to dash into a new school year, tie on your running shoes for Step In’s primary fundraiser: SAM’s Run (Suicide prevention & Awareness of Mental Illness). This 5k run/walk begins and ends at the Laurel Sports Complex, where the (free) Kids’ Run also takes place. Following the run, prizes will be awarded to the top finishers, you’ll learn more about what Step In has been doing and how they are helping to connect families to vital services in the community, and you can enjoy the pancake breakfast, music, and kids’ activities. This run, in honor of Sam, aims to get the school year started on the right foot, reminding us all the importance of taking a stand against the stigma of mental illness, to be proactive, that “One person can only do so much.”
