2018 MLK Unity 5K Run/Walk, January 14

Date: January 14, 2018

Time: 8:00 am

The MLK Unity 5K Run Walk is an event to bring the entire community together based on respect, trust and collaboration. It is about putting into action a “community building mindset” based on inclusion, equity, and valuing our community asset – human capital. The goal of the MLK Unity 5K is to become the biggest multi-cultural event in North County of St. Louis.

Proceeds will also support Youth Achievers Foundation offering of school-based counseling programs which will collaborate with teachers, school counselors, and families to provide supplemental mental health services in the school setting. Through our therapeutic services, we will identify underlying issues, provide tools to improve communication in families, and set individual goals to help students develop the life-long skills necessary for future success. Youth Achievers Foundation will work with the Ferguson-Florissant, Hazelwood, and Normandy school districts to provide these supplemental counseling services. ​ “For adolescents, the first signs of mental illness or emotional distress can emerge in the school environment, and often are the root causes of poor academic performance, disciplinary issues, and truancy.”
