Our third event of 2017 is one of the darkest (and admittedly coolest) ever...the Death Eaters. But our purpose is to remove stigmas and save lives! Your registration includes this large 4" 3D medal, custom sublimated ribbon, and your own personalized digital bib!
We are ripping the mask off depression and suicide and revealing the truth about mental illness. We are thrilled to announce that our charity partner for this event is To Write Love On Her Arms - a charity dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. More than 15 million people in the US suffer from depression. 350 million suffer from depression worldwide. Millions more suffer from anxiety, addiction, and self-injury. A million people take their own life each year...that one every 40 seconds! Far too few seek help and treatment...usually because they see it as a weakness to seek help. TWLOHA is trying to change that. Please visit https://twloha.com/ to learn more...and make sure you read the story of Renee Yohe that started it all!
The medal might be dark, but we are turning the idea of the DeathEater on it's head! Why can't you have a dark medal, a serious topic, and then a super-fun silly shirt?!? Ladies and Gentlemen, we present "the Dork Mark" shirt courtesy of the talented Deb Winslow! All proceeds from the event shirts will also go to TWLOHA. You can get your shirt at: www.booster.com/unmasked-10-mile
The suggested run date for this event is Tuesday, May 2nd. The 19th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts and the final defeat of the DeathEaters!! Remember, this is only a fun suggestion. You are welcome to complete your 10 Miler whenever you want! All of the medals will be mailed on Monday, May 15th!
