CHR, the state’s most comprehensive, non-profit behavioral healthcare agency, will hold its annual 1 in 5 Walk and 5K run on Saturday, May 19, at 10 a.m. at Great River Park in East Hartford.

Join people of all ages as we raise awareness about mental health and substance use by walking a one-mile course or running a 5K across scenic routes overlooking the Hartford skyline. The name “1 in 5” aligns with the fact that one in five Americans will experience a mental health issue at some point in their life.  Also, the May 19 date falls within Mental Health Awareness Month.

All proceeds raised during the event will benefit CHR’s programs and services.

Sponsorship opportunities and registration information will be available in January. For more information, contact Colleen McGill, Development & Communications Associate at or call (860) 697-3463.
