We're All Human 5K Color Run

This local race on November 5 is focused on empowering kids & young adults and the prevention of youth suicide

The Run/Walk is sponsored by the "We're All Human Committee" at Woodgrove High School. The group started last year to bring awareness to the subject of teen suicide and support for struggling teens. Last week they helped kick off a group at Loudoun Valley. 

The students are raising money for the peer-to-peer suicide prevention program, Sources of Strength, they are bringing to Woodgrove and Valley. There have been four teen suicides in Loudoun County this year alone

The work these teens are doing is so important. Please support them if you can.


  1. Very cool. I have never done a colour run. There are a couple up in my area of Canada each year.

    What I like about them is that they are for such great causes. The same goes with the race you are writing about.

    Youth suicide is a very real issue. Our youth today face a world far different than what I grew up with.

    Thank you for sharing this Kim.

    1. Thank you for reading, Carl. Our youth do indeed face a far different world than what you or I grew up with. The dedication of the kids who organized this race certainly gives me hope.
