Take Your Mask Off for Depression 5K Costume Run/Walk

It is often said that those battling depression wear a mask. And because of that mask, friends and family are unaware of that person’s struggles until it’s too late. The Suicide Rebellion, a foundation created in memory of Garret Sinagra, the lead singer of The Whiskey Rebellion who took his life in 2015, is hosting Take Your Mask Off for Depression 5K Costume Run/Walk and 1K kids Trick-Or-Treat. Proceeds will benefit the foundation and Dr. Lisa Pan and her colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh. Their research specializes in identifying biological markers for treatment-resistant depression and suicidal tendencies in adolescents. Participates can compete as singles or teams around North Park’s Harmar Grove for the grand prize and will also have a chance to compete in a 22-pushup challenge which honors the 22 veterans a day that lose their lives to suicide.
