Mental health is just as important as physical health. Our Run For It 5k is an event where thousands run, walk, jog, or roll 3.1 miles as a way to declare just how much hope and healing matter to them.
Join us on Saturday, May 29, 2021, from wherever you are for TWLOHA’s 9th Annual Run For It 5k. This year’s event will be fully virtual because the safety of our team and our supporters comes first.
In addition to moving together, we’re also working to raise $85,000 in support of our mission of presenting hope and connecting people to the help they deserve. You can move and fundraise for your own healing, to honor a loved one gone too soon, or in celebration of your recovery.
What will you move for?

“Each year that we continue this tradition, I’m given the opportunity to remind my sister of how much she’s loved and how important her story truly is.” –Ashley Kempher
“Our team is running to raise a flag of hope in our community. To start conversations. To embrace those who are struggling and show them that they matter. We’re running to honor those who have left us, and to remind ourselves and others that every breath is life-giving and life is worth living.” –Emily Schofield
“This year I’m running for hope. I'm running for every person who can't. I'm running because I have air in my lungs and shoes on my feet. I'm running for those who need to know: your story is not over. Hope is real. Help is real. You deserve both.” –Nicole Battista
“Depression has been my long-time companion. While I know it will always be a part of my journey, I also know that I need to always be vigilant to do those things that keep me mentally healthy. I control it. It does not control me nor define me. There is hope.” –Suzanne Reib-Smith
“For hope. For love. For better days ahead.” –Christina Hamdan
“My beautiful niece Abbey took her life in 2011. I'm giving so that one day other beautiful people choose to stay on this planet because it does get better. ” –Julie Peters
“If this can spare one person from despair and suicide, it's all worth it! Cam will always live forever in our hearts. ❤️” –Judith Walker
