Mental Break 2K/5K Walk 

November 26, 2022

The inaugural Mind and Wellness Foundation ‘Mental Break 2K/5K Walk is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 26, 2022 at Browns Chapel Park in Reston, Virginia.


For many of us, our mental and emotional well-being are positively impacted by exercise and fitness, nutrition and healthy eating, and mind-body practices - but many people seeking help for mental illness are not often offered these options as part of their treatment plan. In addition to traditional therapy, we aim to expand our approaches to address the whole person - body, mind, and spirit. Every dollar we raise during the Mind and Wellness Foundation ‘Mental Break 2K/5K will go toward treatment for young men and women in need of therapy and access to resources that will help support their journey towards overall mental wellness. 


And you can help! Walk. Donate. Raise Funds. However, you choose to participate will help bring light and spread love toward making the world a brighter place for millions of people.
