Team Gilead for Harvard Pilgrim Legends 3.5 Mile Race

Feb 25, 2019

Join us for the 4th Annual Run for Every 1 event on Sunday, April 7, 2019! 

The Run for Every 1 is an initiative Gilead began in 2014 to bring our clients, staff, families, and community members together through a shared dedication to TEAM GILEAD. On April 7, 2019, our team members will participate in the HMF Middletown Legends 3.5 Mile Race to raise awareness about mental illness.

Last year, TEAM GILEAD was comprised of over 350 members, including clients, staff, families, and community members. We proudly wore our t-shirts with the message “1 in 5 adults living in America experience a mental illness.”

Our 2019 Run for Every 1 goals are:

  • To raise awareness about mental illness and how many people are impacted.
  • To support a wellness initiative that brings clients, staff and community together.
  • To grow our team to 500 people showing support for local mental health services.
  • To raise funds to continue providing quality mental health services to over 600 individuals living throughout Middlesex County.
