Living the Dream Foundation annual 5K run and Walk for Hope at Yowell Meadow Park in Culpeper, Virginia.
Annual 5K run and Walk for Hope at Yowell Meadow Park in Culpeper, Virginia. The Living the Dream Foundation was formed to increase awareness of depression, substance abuse and suicide prevention in Culpeper and surrounding communities. Founded in memory of Ben Long who lost his battle with depression and substance abuse by ending his life in 2015. All funds raised will be used in the community to support programs and individuals working to help those suffering from depression, substance abuse and thoughts of suicide. All runners and walkers will receive a Living the Dream Foundation face mask, with a $25.00 donation, water and snacks will be provided. Non-runners are encouraged to participate by walking in memory or support of friends or loved ones who may be touched by depression, substance abuse or suicide. Music, speakers, quilt raffle and local support organizations will be available through out the day. All donations are tax deductible (Federal ID# 23-7238218). See less
