STERLING, IL – VeriFacts, a leading location and employment verification service provider, is proud to announce it is sponsoring the third annual Run for Brain Health on May 20. All proceeds from the run will be donated to the Sauk Valley Area National Alliance on Mental Illness (Nami), whose mission is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with mental illness and their families through support, education, and advocacy. 

“This annual run was started by my best friend, Brenda,” VeriFacts’ Director of Business Development, Traci Oltmans, said. “Brenda works hard to bring awareness to mental health and end the stigma that follows. Countless others have joined in the cause. This third annual event is gearing up to be the biggest run yet. This event is near and dear to my heart, and I’m so happy the VeriFacts team is part of the event this year.” 

Run for Brain Health

For countless people suffering from anxiety, mental illness, and depression, running has become a stable form of focus and meditation. The annual Run for Brain Health event began as a way to focus both Brenda’s own anxiety and to fight for a good cause. Anyone is allowed to sign up for the event— running or walking the 5k race— and all proceeds from the event are dedicated to ending the stigma surrounding mental health.
