Road Race

The 4th Annual Run for Every 1 on

SUNDAY, APRIL 7TH was a huge  success!

It was such a beautiful day and an amazingly successful event. Thank you all for making this event so memorable and impactful! Our team was 500 strong and we have raised over $47,000.

Thank you to our clients, staff, volunteers and community members who made this day such a success.


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 Run for Every 1 goals are:

  • To raise awareness about mental illness and how many people are impacted.
  • To support a wellness initiative that brings clients, staff and community together.
  • To grow our team to 500 people showing support for local mental health services.
  • To raise funds to continue providing quality mental health services to over 600 individuals living throughout Middlesex County.
