Heywood Healthy Harvest 5K
Run/Walk for Mental Health
10th Anniversary

The 2022 Healthy Harvest 5K Run/Walk for Mental Health was a great success and we enjoyed celebrating with you!

On Saturday, October 29, 2022, HH5K hosted over 140 runners and walkers as we kicked off our 10th annual 5k! Thanks to the support of our sponsors and participants year after year, more than $124,000 has been raised! These funds have supplemented several community-based programs including: School-based care coordination, tele-behavioral health services, and fulfilled needs of youth and families as part of our Handle With Care, partnership with law enforcement and our region’s school districts to support children who experience trauma.

Congratulations to all of our runners and walkers!

Your official time (if you wore a tag) is listed within RunSignUp.
