Join Jackson Health Foundation for our annual “Mind Your Health” event to celebrate World Mental Health Day!

Larry and Penny Thompson Park

The event is expected to be attended by hundreds of people who gather to raise awareness and funds to support mental health programs and initiatives at Jackson Behavioral Health Hospital. This year, the event will feature a 5K Run/Walk/Virtual Walk in addition to the vast list of activities throughout the day. Whether it is your first step toward fitness or team tradition, it is about having fun, getting healthy, and raising awareness for mental health. The event and race is open to everyone. Beginners can “ease into exercise” with friends, gain inspiration and motivation to continue walking and running to improve overall health, while competitive runners have the opportunity to lead and shine to victory.
