FIVE4PFC


Hello all!

My name is Anna Parrish. I have suffered from anxiety, an eating disorder, depression, suicidal thoughts and actions, and trichotillomania. I have been on the road to recovery for a little over a year. 
I believe I was graciously placed on earth and given the battle I'm facing for a reason. That reason is to help others by sharing my story and offering my support. 

FIVE4PFC is going to be a 5k leisure walk/run to raise money and bring awareness to mental disorders and the people who have them. 

PFC stands for "prefrontal cortex".  This is a tool in your brain that holds the fate of your mental wellness. For more information, click here.

This will be my first organization. As you may know, it is very costly to start something like this. I am not able to afford this by myself. Some of the costs include:
- venue
- t-shirts 
- 5k permit from state
- portable restrooms 
- fliers and other forms of advertisement
- security 
- decorations
- insurance 

Extra money will be donated to a local charity (TBD).

ANY donation is appreciated, even if it is just a fraction of a dollar. And if the 5k fails to work out, I will either donate all of the money to those charities, look for another way to make this work, or keep pushing towards a 5k in the future. 

Thank you all so much. 

Sincerely,

Anna Parrish
