Spark the Conversation 5K
Spark the Conversation 5K” on Saturday, September 25th will be hosted on the campus of Marist School and supports the non-profit’s mission of promoting mental health awareness among teens and young adults. The race takes place at the 5k course of one of the top high school cross country programs in the state, winding through the woods around Marist, finishing on the lower fields by Nancy Creek.
Heads Up for Harry, founded in 2018, works with local schools and other organizations on how to talk openly about mental health, mental illness, and supporting each other in our mental health journeys.
“We started Heads Up for Harry in memory of our friend Harrison and have been committed to learning how to support each other’s mental health” says President Spencer Mitchell. “We’ve engaged with thousands of Atlanta teens and those who support them, sharing our stories and providing national speakers. We are motivated when we can help teens make the right decisions that support their own and their peers’ health journey.”
