I am running in the On Our Sleeves 5K in memory of my daughter Kristine, who struggled with mental illness and died way too young, at only 16 years of age.
The On Our Sleeves 5K presented by The Big Lots Foundation supports the On Our Sleeves movement for children's mental health.The mission of On Our Sleeves is to provide every family in America access to free, evidence-informed educational resources to break stigmas and educate children, parents, and family members about children’s mental health.
Kids don’t wear their mental health on their sleeves, and by supporting my efforts, you are helping to break stigmas and give kids a voice. No action is too small. No voice is too young. Together, we can transform children’s mental health. Please consider making a donation to my fundraising page today! No amount is too small to make a difference!
All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Nationwide Children’s Foundation.
