Varsity Cross Country · MWCC to Host ‘Runfaiser’ for Mental Health Minnesota


Members of the Mound Westonka cross country team with Shannah Mulvihill, executive director of Mental Health Minnesota

The Mound Westonka High School boys and girls cross country teams are raising awareness this fall of the growing mental health crises in communities across the nation. On Aug. 22, Shannah Mulvihill, executive director of Mental Health Minnesota, met with White Hawks student-athletes to kick off the fall MWCC “Runfaiser” event.

Mental Health Minnesota was founded in 1939 and was the state’s first mental health advocacy and education organization. The non-profit works to help people in their journey toward mental health recovery and wellness through direct service, public policy, education and outreach.

The Mound Westonka cross country team invites you to pledge a student-athlete a dime (or more) per kilometer (1,000 meters – over 0.5 mile) during the team’s last run of the season on Oct. 29. All money raised will go to support Mental Health Minnesota.

Pledges can be made directly to MWCC team members. Questions? Contact coach Butch Humbert at humbertc@westonka.k12.mn.us.
