Mental Health America of Georgia is proud to introduce a brand new family fun day event. Move For Young Minds: The Bubble Edition is a fun 5K bubble race to spread awareness and promote children’s mental health. The race will include a non-competitive 5K race for the athlete runners, a 1k for kids and strollers followed by a foam pit. Runners and event supports will enjoy food trucks, a kids korner with crafts and games, and a health fair to provide information about local resources.
The event will benefit our prevention and early intervention programs that promote children’s mental health. An estimated 1 in 5 young people are affected by mental health problems and two-thirds of those in need of treatment do not have access to it. The lack of access can have damaging and lasting affects on all areas of a child’s life. Mental Health America of Georgia firmly believes children’s mental health needs to be discussed openly and without stigma.
Move For Young Minds is a family-friendly event and we would love to see you there! Please bring your family and your running shoes and be prepared to have a blast in the bubbles! Everyone is welcome to attend and show love and support to the children of Georgia, so please come out and enjoy the event, support the cause, and help us Move For Young Minds!
