The 4th annual Benny’s Run took place in East Hampton, CT on October 01, 2016. We hosted a 5K road race, 5K walk, and a kids fun run. Benny’s Run started as a way to remember a remarkable young man, Benjamin Neiweem, and has since grown into something much bigger. With each community event we are ending the silence that has so long accompanied mental health disorders, such as depression, and suicide. Everyone who participates has a unique story. We walk to support someone struggling so that they know they are not alone. We run to remember a friend or family member lost to suicide. We walk to show support for the families and friends left behind. We run to battle our own depression. We run to end the stigma. We walk because we know that mental health conditions impact all of our lives at some point. Together we are stronger.
