Description

_ The 2021 Run to the MAX for Mental Health 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk:

Run to the "MAX" for Mental Health is a 5k trail run / fun walk at the Noccalula Falls Black Creek Trails in Gadsden, Al on May 8th, 2021. The run is being held to support the nonprofit organization MAXimizing Mental Health, Inc. that is named after our son Max Cochran, a young man who took his own life at age 19. Max was a beautiful, vibrant, loving, person that “lit up” the entire room every time he would walked in one. Unknown too many people, Max fought for many years to defeat his struggles with mental illness and was a very strong willed person that tried many different ways to overcome his personal battles. In the end life became more than he could endure. We want to bring awareness and remove the stigma of Mental Illness in our community, especially in our youth, and raise money so we can offer free Mental Health counseling to our community students. Stick around for the awards and door prizes along with hot dogs and other food and fun at our post race party at the Falls!!
