Be the Force in the Lives of Girls and Women

With every step you run or walk, you will help girls and women receive the mental health care they so desperately need but often cannot afford. Sign up to be a fundraiser for this race, asking your friends and family to give even a small donation toward our cause!

By raising $300, you will provide mental health services for one woman for an entire month at Restoration Place Counseling. Yet, ANY amount raised is appreciated!

Learn More About Our Cause Donate Become a Fundraiser


Whether you are joining us for an in-person race on Saturday, May the 1st, or running virtually between May 1 and May 15, we encourage you to hit the streets in costume to BE THE FORCE in promoting the benefits of getting outside and moving your body, both physically AND mentally!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and May the Course Be With You is raising money to benefit a very special mental health resource in our community, Restoration Place Counseling.
