Emotions In Motion: 5K Run/Walk for Mental Health is on! Because of the COVID-19 pandemic the event will be a bit different than normal (social distancing practices, hand washing, no mass gatherings) but you'll be able to enjoy the same wonderful walk experience for a great cause (supporting SAVE's suicide awareness, education, and prevention work) as always. 

Emotions In Motion: 5K Run/Walks take place in communities like yours across the country, with the proceeds benefiting Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE). By participating in one of SAVE's 5K's you will be raising money for SAVE's many educational programs to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, reduce stigma and serve as a resource for those touched by suicide.

Depression is a treatable medical illness marked by changes in mood, thoughts, energy and behavior that affects more than 23 million adult Americans each year. It is the most common serious brain disease in the United States.
