Fundraise: Provide Additional Support to the Cause

Building Strength 5K participants who would like to become more involved have the opportunity to fundraise for the event. Proceeds support South Metro Human Services programs that benefit their clients and assist them in their daily challenges with mental illness.

At the end of the day there are needs that SMHS can’t provide for because of funding restrictions. That is where you can make a difference. Building Strength 5K participants can be more involved by fundraising for the event.

  • All of the money raised will go directly to The Building Strength Fund, which is in turn, distributed directly to clients for specific needs. No overhead expenses will absorb a cent.
  • Sign up as an individual or a team (no change)
  • Donations can be brought (no change)

Sign up to fundraise as an individual or as a team. Check with your employer about a charitable corporate match.
