Run for Their Lives 5K – Seattle

On a rainy day in November, 300 people gathered at Greenlake in Seattle to celebrate the strength and resiliency of families with struggling teens. The funds raised through this event will help SavingTeens support teens and their families struggling with significant emotional and behavioral challenges including anxiety, depression, addictions and other behaviors that put them at risk. More than $25,000 was raised to provide scholarships to struggling teens who need therapeutic programs.

This event was conceived, planned, and implemented by a group of parents who were tired of feeling helpless about a family member who was struggling.  They wanted to do something to enact change in their community.  Do you have an idea for a fundraiser in your community??  Do you want to help more??  Contact us at:c.weatherhead@savingteens.org.
