First, it's an event to raise awareness regarding suicide and for suicide prevention. Second, it's an event to raise funds. Third, it's a fun 5k walk/run with a shorter 1-mile course available as well! There will be a "First to Finish" Prize, as well as other contest/challenges, so be sure to follow our Facebook event!
The event will take place on Sunday, July 14 at 9am! It is going to be held right in Watkins Glen, starting and finishing at the Elks Lodge! It will be immediately followed by a vendor fair and a chicken barbecue! You can purchase your meal tickets with your registration for the run.
The beauty of the name is the symbolism. We all want the people we know and love to push through, to make it another 24 hours. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves. Depression, as well as other mental health issues, are a struggle...as will be parts of this course. This won't be all flats; you're going to need to push through! We can't wait!
