Marblehead's 5K for Mental Health returns for 2023 on Sunday November 5th at 11AM. Marblehead Rotary club is providing Marblehead schools with a daily mindfulness program called Inner Explorer, a nonprofit, that has developed a series of audio guided practices used in over 7000 schools. The program is simple and delivers measurable results. Inner Explorer’s mission is to make the daily practice of mindfulness, approachable and accessible for school communities and to equip educators, students and their families with valuable life skills that foster human potential.

Last year Congressman, Seth Moulton gave a meaningful talk on the importance of taking care of our mental health right before the race, he said “We want to help equip kids with a set of life skills to deal with anxiety, stress and depression.” This year with nine Marblehead schools supported, we're continuing to do what we can to maintain this support. Please join us on November 5th.

Marblehead Collision, Bluestone Capital and Marblehead Bank are our sponsors this year's event. The race will start and finish at the Boston Yacht Club on Sunday, November 5, 2023.  The race begins at 11 AM.

Please remember that on Sunday, daylight savings time ends, and our clock falls back, so please be mindful of the time!
