MAS 5K Color Run & Walk for Mental Health Awareness


MAS 5K Color Run & Walk for Mental Health Awareness

Assalamualaikom!

Welcome to the MAS MN Color Run & Walk for Mental Health Awareness. This is our first 5K Run & Walk in the Twin Cities. This is our chance as Muslims to come together and show our support for people with mental health issues.

Mental Illness in the Muslim community has recently become a pressing issue, especially amongst our youth. However, an even bigger issue is the stigma around mental health illness, becoming a major barrier for individuals who need help. This 5k color run aims to attract every one of all ages from high school students to college students to parents and families all together. We want to promote exercise, unity, and most importantly; raise awareness about the importance of mental health so that we can fight the stigma of mental health illnesses.
