The 2022 James Lincoln Ruth Award

The Mission of Whole Lotta Love is to encourage the passions of young adults living with mental illness. Whether it be academics, music, sports, or the arts; everyone deserves a chance to chase their dreams.
My lifelong mission has been to change the way the world views mental health. After losing my husband Jim unexpectedly, I created this foundation in his honor.
Mental Illness Awareness Week is October 2, 2022 through October 8th, 2022. I’m using this week to raise awareness and to raise funds for the recipient of The 2022 Jim Ruth Award.

On October 2nd, 2022 - I’ll be hosting a 5k walk in Fort Collins, Colorado. But I’ll be hosting a virtual 5k fundraising walk ALL WEEK LONG. So you can participate when it’s most convenient for you!

Funds raised will be awarded to the winner of the 2022 James Lincoln Ruth Award. The winner will be announced at the end of the fundraiser, which is also the end of Mental Illness Awareness Week (10/8).
❤️ Donate now and help us make noise and break stigmas!
