16th Annual MOM Race for Mental Health Awareness & Suicide Prevention

Join our Department of Psychiatry race team

Please join us for the 16th Annual MOM Race for Mental Health Awareness & Suicide Prevention on Saturday, May 1, 2021.

Dr. Steve Taylor speaking at the 2019 MOM Race

While we're disappointed that we can’t all be together for our usual Royal Oak run/walk for the second year in a row, there are some perks to a Virtual MOM Race. You get to select your race location, starting time, and even the date if the flagship 5/1 event doesn't work for you. And your out-of-state friends and family members can participate alongside you remotely. Plus, the Virtual MOM Race is not just limited to a 5K run/walk.

Your fitness challenge could be a bike ride, hike, yoga, or ANYTHING that gets you outside for at least 30 minutes of exercise during the month of May. The MOM Race raises money for brain research, suicide prevention programming and crisis intervention services. That includes the Boledovich Schizophrenia Research Fund at the U-M Department of Psychiatry, which supports the work of Dr. Steve Taylor and his team.

A Department of Psychiatry race team has been established and now is the time to register.  Discounted registration is available thru April 15. Please join our team for a virtual run, ride or fitness activity of your choice with your Psychiatry friends and families.

To join our team or create your own team, see the MOM Race website for more information and to register: https://momrace.org.
