The Jog for Joy 5K

Sep 24, 2019

In MetroWest Boston teens experience depression and anxiety at rates higher than the national average, and the rate of suicidality amongst those same teens is staying steady (MetroWest Adolescent Health Study, 2016).  We are not going to just sit back and watch this trend continue. Highrock MetroWest is an active community that believes that God doesn't only care about spiritual health, but about mental, emotional, and physical health, too! 

December 8 at 9:15am

Come and join us as we jog for joy -- the proceeds of this fun run will go to The Needham Youth & Family Services Department to connect teens to the resources they need to live more hopeful lives. Together we are working for a brighter, healthier, more joyful MetroWest region!

Are you interested in supporting this cause but not into walking or jogging? We would love to have you serve on our volunteer team! We'll need help preparing for the race and taking care of participants on race day. No prior connection to our (or any) church is necessary.
