Mental Health Awareness 5K Run Takes Place Aug. 13 in Brooklyn Center
Brooklyn Center nonprofit Sports and Leadership Academy is working to get young people and their families active and involved in sports.
“We see that a lot of our youth are stuck inside. They are not really active and there are a lot of things they are going through. So based upon that, if drove the momentum of what we are doing for the 5K,” said Gabriel Kromah, who founded the nonprofit.
Kromah is planning a 5K run at Centennial Park on Saturday, Aug. 13, at 11:30 a.m. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness for mental health in youth.
“Not a lot of our community or youth talk about it,” said Kromah. “So I see what the youth are going through and what can be done to [help with that] with their parents.”
