We went through a lot in 2020 – a pandemic, restrictions, loneliness, stress, anxiety, burnout. And all of it took a toll on our mental health. While many people strive at working from home, they have historically had outlets to connect with people outside of work. Those connections came to a halt in 2020.
Hope Network is kicking off the Mental Health Awareness Month Virtual 51K Challenge. Run or walk 51K throughout the month, honoring the 51.5 million who live with a form of mental illness in the U.S. The distance is a little over 31 miles – and with 31 days in May, that’s about a mile a day! (Of course, how you break the distance down is completely up to you.)
