WALK or RUN For mental health at the Brain Run 5k and Mental Health Expo!



The Brain Run is hosted by the MindShine Foundation.  Our mission is to raise money for mental health research, education, and awareness. Thanks to generous private donors and sponsors who will cover the expense of hosting the Brain Run, 100% of your race registration fee will be donated to mental health organizations. 

In 2019 we donated $24,000 to: 

  • The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation
  • Mental Health Colorado
  • The Jed Foundation
  • IMAlive

Mental Health Expo


In conjunction with the 5k we host a Mental Health Expo focused on turning mental health AWARENESS into ACTION.  In 2019 we brought together more than twenty nonprofit organizations focused on sharing resources to improve and maintain a healthy brain.  By prioritizing exercise, nutrition, sleep, mindfulness and more on a daily basis we can hope to prevent mental health problems before they occur.  Gather ideas for changes you can incorporate into your daily routine on our Actionr page.  Visit our Expo page to learn more about the 2020 Mental Health Expo.
