5K Run/Walk through the Nature Park in Greencastle set for Saturday, October 8

The tenth annual Mind Your Health Run/Walk is scheduled for Saturday, October 8th, starting at 4:30 p.m. from Blackstock Stadium on DePauw University’s Campus in Greencastle and continuing through the Nature Park.

Some may remember 2011 when Marshall Mathew took his life, then a freshman at DePauw, and each year since the Be Great Today 5K has been held to raise awareness and help fund training in our county for suicide prevention and education. So, it seemed a perfect fit for this great cause to join forces with Mental Health America of Putnam County and their annual Mind Your Health Race. MHAoPC promotes mental wellness while working to erase the stigma of mental illness in Putnam County through education, support services and prevention activities.

All community members are welcome and encouraged to participate to race, run or just have a beautiful walk to help support a great cause. All participants will be treated to pizza at the end of the run! Registration starts at 4:30 and the race begins at 5:00 p.m. Registration is $20 and all proceeds stay in Putnam County.
