Event Description

Walk Start Time: 10:00AM (Event day registration will open at 8:45AM)

Please join us for our Inaugural "The World Needs You Here" 3 Mile Walk to be held on the Salem Common in Salem, MA sponsored by Mental Makeover! After 31/2 years of establishing our roots in Salem, our organization just officially became a non-profit and we felt a Walk in our hometown would be the best opportunity to showcase all we are doing in the community while at the same time to honor our good friend, Sarah Starion, someone very close to us, we lost in May of 2020. Not only do we want to honor her and grieve for all the people we've lost, we also want our community to know that even if they are struggling with their mental health or are feeling down, we care about them and want them to know that the world needs them here.
