The Christopher R. Arayata Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 2016 to ensure that proper awareness is made to teenagers and young adults, along with their families, that mental illness is a real illness and it lives amongst many people. To spread awareness of our mission, we are hosting our inaugural Christopher R. Arayata Foundation Turkey Trot 5k/run. The proceeds of this event will help sponsor educational opportunities targeted towards middle-school students in order to increase their understanding of mental illness and promote healthy coping strategies. We hope to make this event a successful and enjoyable experience with your help so come and join us!
