About This Activity

The Thumbs Up High 5K event was created to spread awareness about depression, mental health and suicide awareness.  Each of our committee members has been touched by suicide in their life, whether it be a relative, friend, co-worker or a classmate.  Our goal and mission is to BREAK THE SILENCE about depression and mental health issues.  We need to lift each other up and talk about our problems and our depression, there is HOPE.  If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, don't be ashamed, ASK FOR HELP.  There are so many wonderful resources right in our community!
