Meet Vince and Ruth.
Vince reached out to us early this year with a dream of running the Eugene Marathon in honor of his best friend Kiefer. Not only did he meet his expectations he also smashed them. Vince completed his Marathon and with Ruth's help, raised nearly $9,000 to support mental health awareness!
The marathon was more than a race for Vince. See, his best friend Kiefer, lost his battle with mental illness last October. Vince knew his friend was hurting but never in a million years had thought Kiefer’s despair ran so deep. Vince knows that to prevent others from having the same outcome we need to be able to talk about our pain. There is no shame in reaching out!
Ruth was so moved by Vince's story she joined his team, ran the 5K, and helped contribute to the cause.
Through this event, Vince and Ruth have brought both awareness and compassion to the issue of mental health. It couldn’t have come at a better time as May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
We are so honored to have been able to collaborate with Vince and Ruth.
