About This Activity

Walk For Love is a 5k that will take place on June 4th, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the Indy CanalWalk with kick off beginning at the White River State Park area.  This event is taking place in order to raise money for mental health awareness and to reduce the stigma and fears associated with mental illness. There will be guest speakers, a dj, snacks, and various self-esteem boosting stations set up at the starting line. The whole day will be dedicated to promoting love and letting those who are struggling with mental illness know that they are not alone. T-shirts ($7) and bracelets ($2) will be sold at the event as well as a $5 admission fee. You may register at the event or ahead of time on the registration website. All proceeds will be donated to local organization that provide services for mental health.
