A personal note from Josh Maxwell: “As a community, we need to do everything we can to support anyone who is struggling. I’m running the NYC Marathon this year to raise money for mental health and suicide prevention because I want my neighbors and friends to know they are never alone, and to make sure we all have the resources we need to thrive. Your support means a lot not just to me, but to the hardworking organizations doing this essential work day in and day out. Thank you.”
