Be You! Walk for Children's Mental Health,

Ocala, Florida, United States Ocala, Florida, United States

  • About the event

    The Centers is hosting our 4th Annual Be You! Walk benefiting Children’s Mental Health this coming April. The Centers is a nonprofit organization providing mental health, recovery support and child safety services since 1972. In 2017, The Centers impacted the lives of 12,500 people, including 4,000 children. Through the walk, we are looking to spread awareness of the importance of mental health in youth and support early intervention, prevention and therapeutic care for children in our community.  The walk includes music, activities for the kids, food trucks and a family friendly one mile walk.  

    Unfortunately mental health problems do not discriminate. It can be difficult to consider a child could be struggling with mental health. Whether trauma from abuse, anxiety or even depression, youth in Marion County face battles of mental health every day and The Centers works tirelessly to help these children.

    Why should you sponsor?

    By sponsoring our Be You! Walk you would be playing a part in helping us improve the lives of children struggling with mental health and help us to spread awareness of the importance of mental health in youth and support early intervention, prevention and therapeutic care for children in our community. For the sponsors, there will be a great amount of visibility and the sponsor will be showing support of the health of children in the community.
