Description

_ The 2022 Erik Power Severson Memorial 5K Walk/Run:

In celebration of Erik's life, we invite you to the 2nd annual run or walk with us to raise money for mental health awareness.

Erik was a smart, funny, atheltic young man who struggled with depression and a recent diagnosis of Bipolar disorder. In Erik's memory, his family has partnered with Project Healthy Minds whose mission is to encourage discussion about our mental health. We are supporting a movement aimed at changing attitudes about mental health as well as bridging the gap between people seeking help and care providers.

Your contribution will help us confront the mental health crisis by supporting Project Healthy Minds' efforts to:

  • Reduce the stigma around mental health
  • Build technology that makes it easier to discover the right help
  • Expand access to care

If you wish to learn more about our cause, you can visit the Project Healthy Minds website: https://www.projecthealthyminds.com/

The 5K will be held virtually and in person. You are able to do your walk or run on your own time and submit your results virtually!  The run is not an offically timed event, but is meant to bring people together to celebrate Erik and support those who may be struggling. 

The virtual event will be open for submissions any time between May 16 - May 30. (Registration open NOW - May 30)

The in-person event will be held on Saturday, May 21. The day  before Erik's 21st birthday. (Registration open NOW - May 20)
