Taking Strides for Mental Health Awareness

Are you ready to take your health and wealth to the next level? We are!

The Johnston County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is hosting their 11th Annual 5K Run & Walk "Taking Strides for Mental Health Awareness, 2nd Annual Improve Your Health and Build Your Wealth Fair, and Blood Drive. on Saturday, May 20, 2023. The event will take place at Municipal Park from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Municipal Park is located in the heart of Clayton, NC at 326 McCullers Drive.

The 5K is a fundraiser to support scholarships for high school seniors and community service programs benefiting Johnston County. What’s more, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the House of Hope of North Carolina courtesy of the Johnston County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta. House of Hope is a Christian therapeutic school and counseling center. It provides mental health services to teenage girls between the ages of 12 - 17 and their families.

Moving along, the overall goal of the fair is to improve the health and finances of the residents of Johnston County. With that being the case, they have partnered with organizations to provide education, information, and resources to empower and strengthen the community. On that note, I’m pleased to announce that The Rules of a Big Boss LLC was personally selected as one of these partner organizations. As part of this partnership, with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, The Rules of a Big Boss will be providing books, activities, and crafts that support self-love and self-esteem.

As for me, I'm not going to lie, I haven’t run a race in years, so I’m not fully prepared for the challenge. It’s going to be worth it though because my mom and several of my cousins and aunts are members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. But not only that, this cause holds special meaning to me given my own mental health challenges.

I hope that you'll join me in running for a good cause. You can do so by going here. If you're unable to run you can walk or join me virtually. You can do so by going here. I hope to see you there at the finish-line!
