    Hope Network One in Five Marathon Relay
    This year, one in five adults will experience a mental illness-that's over 40 million people in the U.S. alone-but with early intervention, we can reduce the devastating effects. Proceeds from the One in Five Marathon Relay will fund early intervention programming, as well as Hope Network services for those currently battling severe mental illness.

    In addition to the physical race the Virtual 10K is a new part of the One in Five Marathon Relay, which allows runners to run their own course, on their own time.

    This isn't about treating mental illness. It's about taking an entirely new angle-preventing mental illness and its devastating effects.
