Click here to Sponsor a Client!  In 2019, over 100 clients ran, walked or cheered with TEAM GILEAD.  Beginning in February, we begin training for the event and meet at a variety of locations, including Wesleyan University track and the YMCA in Westbrook.  Your donation of $250 pays for a new pair of sneakers for a client; race registration fee; water bottle and t-shirt; plus training support, which includes healthy snacks and incentive rewards.

 

About TEAM GILEAD

The Run for Every 1 is an initiative Gilead began in 2014 to bring our clients, staff, families, and community members together through a shared dedication to TEAM GILEAD.  On April 7, 2019, our team members participated in the HMF Middletown Legends 3.5 Mile Race to raise awareness about mental illness.

TEAM GILEAD was comprised of over 500 members, including clients, staff, families, and community members. We proudly wore our t-shirts with the message “Who Will You Walk For?”

Our 2020 Run for Every 1 goals are:

  • Educate others about the importance of quality mental health services.
  • Reduce stigma by sharing your story of how mental illness has impacted you or a loved one & showing community support on April 5th.
  • Raise funds for quality mental health services to over 1,600 individuals living in Middlesex County & New Britain.
  • Raise awareness for the 1 in 5 adults experiencing a mental illness.

If you’d like to volunteer on Race Day or be part of the committee, please contact us.
