Team Active Minds

add meaning to your miles

Mental health is just as important as physical health. By joining Team Active Minds, you can make your next endurance or physical activity one that also raises awareness and funds for mental health. Whether you choose to run, walk, bike, swim, cheer on a participant, celebrate a loved one, or even volunteer at an event, you can make a difference.

There are multiple ways to join Team Active Minds:

  • Commit to one of our signature events with our partners. We’ll be at unique events across the country in 2024!
  • Join a local event near you
  • Start your own endurance event with our do-it-your-way (DIY)

No matter how you choose to join Team Active Minds, our Community Fundraising & Events team is here to help! You’ll get personalized support, fundraising tips and resources, and a community behind you that all want to see you cross your finish line for mental health.

Start your own active event

However you want to move, let’s move mental health forward together! By adding fundraising to your next 5K, Marathon, Cycling, Gym, or any other Fitness Event we are collectively raising money and awareness to move the conversation forward. Just like physical challenges take training and support, Active Minds believes in giving youth and young adults the training, tools, resources, and support to engage in challenging conversations about their mental health.

Start your Team Active Minds Community Event


Please note: Active Minds cannot provide direct funding or reimbursement for expenses related to community fundraising events. Event organizers are responsible for the organization, operation, and control of the event, including all costs incurred. Our team may be able to assist and we encourage you to reach out with questions! 


Team Active Minds Endurance Events

Our mental health movement requires sharing our mission to new audiences and reminding our communities that mental health matters. By bringing awareness and Team Active Minds to a race or event near you, you’re standing up and telling others that this cause is important to you.

Together we also get to turn fitness and physical endurance events into fundraising. Running, spinning, working out – any fitness activity you choose and enjoy is a chance to make an impact and raise awareness.

When you join one of our charity partner events with Team Active Minds, you agree to a fundraising minimum that will make a difference in the mental health movement and save lives. By meeting this commitment, we’ll cover your entry fees while you focus on making a difference. Each race has different levels, and our community fundraising team will be with you every step of the way – with tips and tricks, resources, ideas, and to cheer you on.

If you are joining your own local event, providing your own bib, or starting your own Team Active Minds event, there is no required fundraising minimum. You should choose a goal and impact level that feels important to you.

By joining us and starting your fundraising efforts, you’ll receive special custom Team Active Minds Jersey, additional swag as you raise funds, join an exclusive community of committed mental health advocates, and still get all the benefits of the race too! Depending on the event, Active Minds may also have a booth, event, or meet + greet opportunity – check out the event page you are interested in joining to learn more. 

Yes and no. Active Minds is proud to serve as a charity partner with a variety of races and events across the country, which provide impactful support for the mental health mission. Our Team Active Minds community is a dedicated network of supporters, athletes, and do-gooders who care about making their miles mean more than just a medal or finish line. By joining with us, you’ll receive exclusive swag, access to our community fundraising team to support your fundraising journey, and invitations to event activities only available to our charity participants.

Some races also do sell out or are only available to elite athletes. Our charity program allows athletes of all abilities to participate while making a difference.
