Mental Health Matters: 40 Mile Challenge
Get out and Move for Mental Health!

Join us in May, Mental Health Awareness Month, for a month-long fitness and fundraising challenge!

For 40 years, Development Centers has helped thousands of children, adults and families live healthier, happier lives.

To celebrate our 40th anniversary our goal is to raise $40,000 to meet the growing needs for quality mental health care, employment, and early childhood education.

Up to $20,000 will be matched now until May 31, 2023.

Why move?

Movement and exercise are powerful. Being active improves the functioning of the central nervous system and has several long-term mental health benefits. Participating in this challenge is an ideal way to promote team building and promote healthy activity among your workforce.


Become a sponsor, get a team together, and get out and move for Mental Health!

Your support brings life-saving mental health treatment to thousands of children and adults in and around Detroit.
