Join the Sounds of Silence Foundation’s 4th annual run/walk to help raise funds in the effort to increase awareness of perinatal mood disorders, such as postpartum depression (PPD), postpartum OCD, and postpartum psychosis. Not only is this for an excellent cause, it will be a nice opportunity to race (or walk) a beautiful 5K boardwalk along the Atlantic Ocean.
Date: Saturday, May 21, 2011
Time: Registration from 8:30-9:15; race/walk begins at 9:30 AM
Place: Jones Beach State Park, Wantagh, Long Island (Field 5)
Registration: $25 (adults); $15 (18 and under); $3 additional on day of event
Other Race Details: The top female and male runners, plus top fundraiser, will receive awards. Two years ago, I was one of the two top fundraisers, bringing in over $1,000 (as an individual).
Donation: If you can’t participate in person but would like to make a tax-deductible donation (and encourage others to do so as well), please click here. Proceeds from donations will benefit the Postpartum Resource Center of New York.
