TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Registration is open for Team of Mercy’s ninth annual Surviving The Color 5K event.
This year’s event will be held Saturday, May 21.
Surviving The Color is Team of Mercy’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and allows the group to provide services for families who have lost loved ones to suicide. The group also makes efforts to promote suicide prevention services.
“We had to up our budget quite a bit this year from 2020 and 2021 with our counseling services,” said Executive Director Christina Crist. “We want to ensure that individuals that are struggling are able to get the mental health services that they need.”
The deadline to secure a race T-shirt is May 15.
Crist says the goal this year is to raise $60,000. Registration online can be found here.
Those unable to participate in the event can still donate online here.
