The Jog for Joy 5K

In 2019, Highrock MetroWest hosted a 5K fun run in support of mental health resources for teens, and a rockin’ party to celebrate. We raised enough money to sustain Youth Mental Health First Aid courses offered locally for several years, and we partnered with people from all over to spread a little light into a dark season. Since then, we’ve hosted the annual jog resulting in tens of thousands of dollars being given away to organizations doing good work for our teens and their families.

This year the Jog for Joy moves to a warmer month! Join us, Sunday, June 9th, for a classic 5K race experience with professional timing and a post race party with food and awards – fun for the whole family! We’d love to have you join as a participant OR volunteer in hosting the event. For those who can’t make it in person, register as a virtual participant and support the cause from wherever you are!

Whether you walk, jog, roll, or stroll, you’ll be supporting these amazing organizations:

Needham Youth and Family Services (Needham, MA)

Hope Psychological Services (Lexington & Arlington MA)

Sunday, June 9th @ 10am - 754 Greendale Ave. Needham MA
