On Sunday October 14, 2018, the 3rd Annual JWB5K and Family Fun Run will take place at the historic Maryland State Fair Grounds. This year's race features international, extreme athelete, motivational speaker and author, Wim Hof "The Iceman". There is no health, without mental health. Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. (18.5%) experiences mental illness in a given year. 1 in 5 youth aged 13–18 (21.4%) experiences a severe mental disorder at some point during their life. For children aged 8–15, the estimate is 13%. 100% of the The JWB 5K and Family Run proceeds will go to fund the mission of The John W.

**The John W. Brick Foundation was started by Victor and Lynne Brick and was named after Victor's oldest brother, John, who suffered from schizophrenia his entire life and died of complications from the disease. All money raised from the race will go towards a 2-year, $1.2 million, gold-standard study the JWB Foundation is funding in conjunction with the University of California, San Francisco, on how positive stress, in the form of the WHM, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), and Meditation, affect depression. This study will help the foundation fulfill its mission of funding, conducting, and promoting evidence-based research on how holistic treatments-such as exercise, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle choices-benefit mental health.
