Nearly everyone in our community knows someone who has been affected by mental illness or addiction. How can we bring awareness to these issues? Each spring walkers and runners fill the streets of Quincy to show our community that mental illness is not a cause for shame; it is a reason for us to unite in support of our loved ones.
Now in its 46th year, the Stop the Stigma 5K has become an annual tradition for hundreds of families and individuals from all over the Greater Boston area. The funds raised through this event allow Interfaith Social Services to assist thousands of local families every year. After the race, join us for a family fun celebration including food, ice cream, kids’ crafts, music, air brush tattoos, face painting, a bouncy house, raffles and more! Register today then start gathering pledges now to help our neighbors in need.
Make your participation stretch even further! Download a pledge sheet and collect donations from your friends and family in support of your walk/run.
