_ The 2018 Aspire to Shine Glow Run 5K + Fun Walk:

In celebration with communities around the world, we are aspiring to shine a light on the importance of children's mental health. May is Children's mental health awareness month, and to kick of the month Aspire and other helath agencies are hosting a GLOW RUN. 

The Glow Run will be taking place at night with the first set of runners taking off at 7:45. There will be glow sticks available to ensure you are glowing all the way to the finish line. After the race, the fun doesn't end! There will be food trucks, face painting, inflatables, and other carnival fun until 10:30PM. 

This event is for the entire family with fun all night! 

1 in 5 children and youth will have a serious mental health condition, with 50 percent of all lifetime cases beginning by age 14. Understanding the signs and symptoms of a mental disorder can help improve outcomes in all facets of life. For those living with mental disorders, finding real help leads to finding real hope! 

In celebration with communities around the nation, Aspire is hosting this special event in support of children's mental health. Join us as we aspire to shine a light on the importance of children's mental health awareness!
