What a beautiful day! This year we had gorgeous weather for Moving for Mental Health. With the great weather came a great crowd. Nearly 300 people joined us for what was our biggest crowd yet! Together we raised over $15,000 to support the Chrysalis mission to promote mental health recovery in our community by supporting work opportunities that encourage hope healing, and wellness. Here are what some event attendees had to say.
“The Chrysalis Moving for Mental Health was an extremely well organized event. The beautiful course, friendly volunteers, and post-race entertainment exceeded expectations. I will certainly attend this exciting 5K next year to support awareness for mental health.” – Race Participant
“As a new Chrysalis employee, this was my first Moving for Mental Health. It was a pleasure being a part of this vital connection to the community. The turnout was spectacular and the participation by my coworkers was fantastic. I have been part of other organizations in the Milwaukee and Madison areas that put on events to foster the movement of mental health, but Chrysalis has them beat by miles. The professionalism and attention to detail were far greater than anything I’ve been a part of and shows how much Chrysalis is involved in the community. In short Chrysalis not only “talks the talk but we walk the walk.” – Furman Avery, Chrysalis Employment Specialist
“Moving for Mental Health is a worthwhile event that raises a lot of money for Chrysalis to be able to offer its services. I liked mingling with others and seeing people that I wouldn’t necessarily see otherwise. I think the event is well run, and a successful fundraiser each year!” – Chrysalis Client
We’re already looking forward to Moving for Mental Health 2020! Hope to see you there!
