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.

This year's Stop the Stigma 5K is celebrating 50 years of supporting our community! Registration is now open. We are also looking for sponsors for the event.

The Stop the Stigma Raffle is NOW OPEN!

Our race committee has put together 29 amazing packages, including Bruins playoff tickets, Red Sox tickets with field passes, Airstream camping on the Cape, hotel stays, restaurant gift cards, golf outings, and so much more!

Tickets are $5; purchase now through May 1.

Winners will be selected on May 2 and contacted via email.
