Stop the Stigma 5K

Stop the Stigma 5K April 27, 2024

Nearly every family in the United States has been touched by mental illness or addiction. Interfaith Social Services hosts the Stop the Stigma 5K each year to support our loved ones, challenge stereotypes, encourage acceptance and eliminate stigmas, all while raising funds for our New Directions Counseling Center.

The 2024 Stop the Stigma 5K is celebrating 50 years of supporting our community!

THANK YOU to all who participated in 2024 by walking, running, fundraising or sponsoring. With your help, we were able to raise more than $140,000 for our mental health counseling center!
