The SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women has raised over $3.4 million dollars for local mental health services. Every dollar raised supports mothers, daughters, and friends through the funding of programs that allow women to take that next step to recovery. Run for Women is a celebration of the healing power of a loving community. Research shows that running and walking is as effective as taking medication for mild to moderate depression and anxiety. When we come together to walk or run with friends, we experience that exercise can heal the mind and restore the soul.
