5k Zucchini Run & Fun Walk

Saturday, July 21, 2018

Chardon Square Chardon, OH

Join us at 8 am July 21 on Chardon Square to help outrun the stigma of mental health by participating in the third annual Zucchini Run! Registration is donation based, pay what you can afford and help us erase the stigma! 

1 in 4 people are affected by mental illness each year but only 41% of those people received mental health services in the past year. Individual mental health treatment costs vary widely from person to person and from health plan to health plan.

So we decided to let the runners decide how much they want to pay for the race. Our cost per runner is approximately $8-$10. Please consider making a donation you are comfortable with to Emerald Rose for your participation in the race (near the end of the online registration process, directly on our website, or at the race). 5k Registration includes chip timing and age group awards. The one mile will not be timed but there will be a clock at the finish. T-shirts are available during registration for an additional cost and extras will be available at the race. The scenic course starts and finishes at the Chardon Square. Can't rn? Can't donate? Please like our Facebook page and help spread our mission by sharing our posts!

Donations will go towards Emerald Rose's general funds. We are currently looking to hire a grant writer so we can make moves on our Emerald Fields Theraputic Farm property. Stay tuned for a huge announcement on our progress!
