SERVING INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES LIVING WITH MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS IN MIDDLESEX COUNTY SINCE 1968
Hello Team Gilead 2020,
The annual April Run for Every 1 in Middletown was not to be this year. So we switched gears and moved alone but still stay connected. During the week-long Move for Every 1 event, we received over 350 photos and videos showcasing how you were moving for mental health – yoga, walking, headstands, swimming, and so much more! With your help, Team Gilead was 500 strong and raised over $52,000 through the combined events. We hope you all had as much fun as we did.

Share you photos! Snap a pic of you “Moving” with your 2020 Gilead t-shirt and send to us by:
Every photo shared, gets you one raffle ticket to win some great prizes! All of our Team Gilead “Moving” photos and videos will be incorporated into a variety of communication strategies during the event.
The event will be held the week of June 27th – July 3rd
A week, what? Yes, you can do your moving anytime that is convenient for you during that week. You can do your choice of exercise once during that week or as many times as you want. You can do multiple types of movement. For example, I will walk every day that week or I will do yoga 3 days or I will swim for a mile.
This year’s event is focused on MOVING so you can decide how you would like to join in the exercise fun. Is it walking, running, yoga, stretching, biking, kayaking, skate boarding or something else? Don’t forget to send us your photos or selfies! We plan to create a collage of all participants and every photo enters you into a raffle.

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?”
