Run For It 5k 2019

What Will You Run For?

The Run For It 5k started in 2013 as a new way for us to connect with the people in our community and to share our mission of spreading hope and finding help for those struggling with mental illness. It’s an event that brings together the importance of caring for both our mental health and our physical health. In that first year, we witnessed hundreds of people move for things that mattered to them: their well-being, their recovery, their healing, or in memory of a loved one. Since then, the Run For It 5k has evolved from a single-community race in Central Florida, to thousands of people running virtually in all 50 states and over 10 different countries across the globe.

This year’s 7th Annual Run For It 5k will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

You can join our team in Satellite Beach, Florida, or register for the Virtual 5k and participate from anywhere in the world! When you sign up and purchase a runner’s pack, you have the incredible opportunity to rally those around you and bring the power of hope and help directly to your community. No matter if you run or walk or jog, you’ll be moving for things that matter.


Our favorite part of the Virtual 5k are the meet-ups! These are small groups of runners and walkers coming together to complete their 3.1 miles as a team, wherever they call home. Right now, there are meet-ups happening on April 13 in over 35 states and 5 different countries. We encourage you to take a look at the list below and join one! What will you run for for?
