About the Race

Beat the Blues Cruise is a 5K Run/Walk and 10K Run that will have its inaugural race on Saturday April 6th, 2019. The mission of the BTBC is to raise awareness about suicide and preventative measures. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States with approximately 45,000 Americans dying of suicide each year. Our hope is that by providing information and education we can help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and ultimately its prevalence. Proceeds will be donated to organizations dedicated to providing mental health care
