Our newest event was created by a sophomore at Aragon High school. Her initiative, Stride for Awareness, is partnering with the San Mateo Police Activities League to promote the importance of Student Health and Mental Wellness. On Sunday, May 6, 2018, San Mateo PAL and Stride for Awareness will host a 5k run/walk including a resource fair being held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 with a speaker session designed to educate, connect participants and the community. Together we are spreading awareness about health and mental wellness. Our goal is to guide teens toward repairing their mind, body and personal community. To encourage dialogue and provide support to teens through discussion, involvement and education. This event promotes the collaboration between youth and adults in dealing with stress, to achieve the safe, loving and caring community we all envision.
