14th Annual MOM 5K Race for Mental Health Awareness & Suicide Prevention

May 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Has your life been touched by mental illness or suicide? Are you looking to connect with others to help erase the stigma, or just participate in a local 5K for a good cause? If so, please join us on Saturday, May 4 in Royal Oak for the 14th Annual MOM Race for Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention. The 5K run/walk starts at 10 AM from Starr Jaycee Park and takes place in the beautiful Vinsetta neighborhoods between 12 Mile and Main St. The MOM Race is a USATF-certified 5K featuring age group awards, a team challenge competition, fundraising opportunities, raffle prizes, plentiful refreshments, live music and more! MOM Race proceeds benefit brain research at The University of Michigan Depression Center, suicide prevention programming by KnowResolve, and crisis intervention services provided by Common Ground. A portion of the 2019 funds will also be used to modernize momrace.org and restart the Royal Oak SAFE suicide prevention taskforce.
