Pumpkin Pie Fun Run

November 24 @ 8:00 am - November 30 @ 5:00 pm

Kick-start your holiday season with LSSI’s first annual Pumpkin Pie Fun Run: Baking the World a Butter Place! Choose your own challenge for this virtual event, and complete a 1k, 5k, or 10k anytime and anywhere between November 24 and November 30. Run, walk, hike, bike, or even snowshoe: how you get to the finish line is up to you! Whether you complete your race individually on your favorite trail, on a treadmill, or with a group of friends, your participation will help raise awareness for the need for mental health care in Illinois.

Participants will receive an event T-shirt and a pair of holiday socks mailed in December.

LSSI served over 25,000 clients each year who come to us seeking mental health treatment, from young children through seniors. Proceeds will support LSSI’s mental health services, including counseling for families and children through Intact and therapeutic foster care, drug and alcohol treatment for youth and adults, emergency mental health treatment through Mobile Crisis and Project IMPACT, and more.
