"Running for Anxiety and Depression"

I don't think there is anyone who has not been effected in some way by everything that has gone on this past year. With stress, anxiety, and depression on the rise, I think it is important to get the help we need so we can move past these crazy times.

On June 27th, I will be running 35 miles, fully self-supported, to help raise money for this cause. I have started a GoFundMe page where anyone can make a donation which will go directly to ADAA and help make a difference.

While many around me do not know, I am no stranger to anxiety myself. I suffer daily from OCD and I am in a constant battle to control it. I understand the importance of having the right resources and access to information to learn how to overcome mental illness. Please pass this message on so we can begin to move past these troubling times and improve the future for us all. 

Support the GoFundMe and donate to ADAA: https://gofund.me/041730b2.
