This fun run is tailored as a community outreach event, bringing together local community-based resources focused on wellness, mental health, and suicide prevention.
ConnerStrong Foundation, in partnership with Supervisor Rodney Lusk’s office (Franconia District Supervisor) and Celebrate Fairfax, are proud to partner in our 1st Fun Run event! On hand will also be local community-based resources and organizations who provide various wellness, mental health and suicide prevention goods and services.
Since we know there are several basic needs that can influence mental health (i.e. – homelessness, unemployment, hunger, etc.) our goal for this event is to make aware of the resources available in our community to the residents and address one such critical need – lack of food and clothing.
All of the non-perishable food and monies raised from this event will be going to help two local community food banks, Koinonia & United Community. These two organizations provide services to disadvantaged residents in Franconia District and serve over 22,000 families annually.
