In a time of uncertainty, mental and physical well-being are critical to the continued growth and development of each us. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in August 2020 that symptoms of anxiety had tripled and depression symptoms had quadrupled among adults as compared to results from 2019. Meanwhile, mental health services have been stretched worldwide.
Though, we have all experienced a certain level of anxiety and depression, the COVID -19 pandemic has facilitated the prevalence of those symptoms and more. Educator's Joshua Miller and Adam Robertson are fondly remembered today because of their work with at risk students and their individual battles with mental health issues.. Not only will the EPIC 5K Memorial Run/Walk make an impact on local communities and fellow educators but, also, for the Miller and Robertson families.
We are eager to provide participants with resources to shed light on mental and physical well-being while celebrating those who suffer daily and honoring those who have lost their mental and physical health battles.
