Allison Nuara's Story
This November, I will be running the New York City Marathon on behalf of ‘Still I Run’ to help spread awareness of the magical powers running can have on mental health. Navigating the unpredictability of life has been challenging and I have run through it all.
Running the New York City Marathon has been a long-term goal of mine and I am grateful to run with an organization with a personal and powerful mission.
Each day I remind myself why I am running this marathon. I am running for myself; I am running for my family, my friends and anyone who has ever felt alone or afraid of navigating mental health. Managing mental health is a daily struggle and doing so in a world that is not accepting is even more challenging. I am excited to continue to run through my challenges and purposefully spread awareness of the power of running and mental health awareness. Thank you again for your consideration and support!
Still I Run is a non-profit running community that rallies around mental health. Through various programs that Still I Run offers, the non-profit hopes to educate others about running for mental health, raise mental health awareness, provide encouragement to others, and help people experiencing hardship get started in their running journey.
Talking about and raising awareness of mental health is more important than ever. In 2021, 4 in 10 American adults reported symptoms of depression and anxiety. That’s up from 1 in 10 who reported those same symptoms in 2019 (source). While running is not a complete cure for a mental health condition, Still I Run believes in the power of running for mental health. It’s not only scientifically proven to help increase those “happy chemicals” in our brain, but the sense of accomplishment of a run can boost confidence.
We hope you'll support Still I Run's mission by donating to our amazing team of runners that will take on the New York City Marathon on November 6, 2022 on behalf of Still I Run!
