MADISON, NJ - On Wednesday, May 16, the Madison Area YMCA will host "The Mind Matters 5K: Mentally Healthy One Stride at a Time” and 1-mile family fun run/walk on the campus of Giralda Farms in Madison.

The Madison Area YMCA is committed to providing life-enhancing health and wellness programming to all. The community is fortunate to have local corporations wholeheartedly participate in these efforts. PGIM Real Estate, a race sponsor, has a tradition of bringing a team of employees each year to run the 5K.

“PGIM Real Estate is proud to sponsor and encourage employee participation in the Madison Area YMCA’s 5K event annually, helping to support the YMCA’s Madison-area programming efforts and mental health initiatives – all right outside our headquarters,” said Cathy Marcus, global chief operating officer and head of the United States for PGIM Real Estate.

\All proceeds raised from the event will benefit the Y's programs that heal the whole person emotionally, mentally and physically. The Y’s Community Mental Health Initiative raises awareness and lowers the stigmas associated with mental illness. CMHI also focuses on reducing barriers to mental health care by providing community members with knowledge and skills to increase help-offering behaviors.
“At PGIM Real Estate, we believe that doing the right thing for our people, the environment and our communities leads to better results for all our stakeholders. Every May, PGIM Real Estate team members look forward to and rally around this 5K race. It has become a true teambuilding event for us, with participation growing every year since we started partnering with the YMCA on the event in 2012. The camaraderie amongst colleagues before, during and after the race is both fun and rewarding, but the team is equally as inspired to support the YMCA’s programming efforts within our community,” said Ms. Marcus.
