|Melbourne, FL – March 2, 2021 – Nothing can take away how far you’ve come. Those are the words To Write Love on Her Arms is rallying behind for their 9th Annual Run For It 5k event. To TWLOHA, those words mean that the progress you have made or are making can never be erased. TWLOHA invites you to join them on Saturday, May 29, 2021, as they celebrate the existence of hope and help, and to honor those gone too soon. To remind ourselves and those experiencing mental health challenges that healing is possible and caring for our mental well-being is just as important as our physical health. The race this year will be completely virtual, meaning everyone participating can move from wherever they are in a safe manner! “This event has become a yearly staple where thousands of people from all across the globe move from their communities as a way to declare just how much hope, healing, and prioritizing mental health matters to them,” says Kat Baccash, TWLOHA’s Finance + Development Manager. “And this year, we’re highlighting the fact that your healing does not unravel in the face of hard moments or imperfect chapters—it continues. You continue.” This year TWLOHA aims to raise $85k in support of their mission of presenting hope and connecting people to the help they deserve.
