About This Activity

Join us for our first ever GPA 5K for Mental Health Awareness. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness about the importance of "protecting your brain" by taking care of your mental health. The event will take place on September 17th in the historic Grant Park.  Starting in front of the Milledge Fountain which is located about 1/2 mile north of the Grant Park Zoo, the race route takes you on a street route around the park through the beautiful Grant Park neighborhood and brings you back to Milledge Fountain to cross the finish line.
