Miah Mile

Walk or run a mile for Mental Illness Awareness and Hope, Saturday, Aug. 13.
The Miah Mile event will be at Lake Orion High School track, 495 E. Scripps Road, from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m.
“The goal of this event is to educate the public and bring awareness to the community about the various mental illnesses and suicide which is so commonly the fatal outcome, as well as to end the stigmas surrounding both mental illness and suicide,” said Mary Ann Reyes of Clarkston, organizer of the event. “It is in memory of my son Jeremiah Hargett who fought a courageous battle with a severe mental disorder which ultimately claimed his life through suicide.”
T-shirts will be $20, with proceeds going to Common Ground to provide assistance to those who suffer with mental disorders, suicide prevention outreach, and support for families.
Common Ground will be also on site providing support and literature. The event will include a balloon memorial for those who have loss their lives due to suicide.
There is no registration fee, and all are welcome.
