Rams on the Run Brings Awareness to Mental Health

On Saturday, May 21, 2022, Southeastern Community College hosted the first Rams on the Run 5K.

As part of SCC’s strategic plan, the Health and Wellness committee was charged with creating and maintaining a culture that supports and promotes the overall health and wellness of students, employees, and the community.

This year, the focus was on bringing awareness to emotional health – the ability to be self-aware and cope with challenges and needs while developing overall resilience. The global pandemic of COVID-19 has affected many in our community and the college feels that it’s important to support those struggling with mental health and recognize the signs that may lead to a decline in emotional stability.

There were over 100 in attendance for the fun-filled morning.
