Creating a VIBE to Heal 5K

Registration is open through May 13, 2021. Run on your own on Saturday, May 15, 2021

Did you know that one in five Americans will experience a mental health condition in a given year? Mental Illness is prevalent through our society — chances are that if you don’t have a mental illness, you know someone who does.

Mental illness is a disease that does not discriminate. It can affect anyone and it cannot be prevented. And yet — there is a ton of stigma around it.

We hope to educate about mental health, raise mental health awareness, encourage others, and help people experiencing hardship through the programs we offer.


Join The Young Professionals Group of Bergen New Bridge Medical Center Foundation on May 15 and virtually run, jog, walk, or ride for 5K (3.10 miles) in your neighborhood, park, or home.

Can’t run the day May 15? Submit your times and pics before May 16.

Runners and walkers of all levels, abilities, and speeds are welcome!

Proceeds will benefit the Recovery Center and Mental Health Services at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center

Runners and walkers of all levels, abilities and speeds are welcome!
