Welcome to Team Hannah!
We welcome you join Team Hannah or support one of the amazing athletes who are fund raising for Hannah’s House by running in the Mad Marathon on July 10th. Hannah's House is a community supported, nonprofit mental health and resource center located in Waitsfield, Vermont. All of the funds raised by Team Hannah will help provide mental health services for our rural area in Central Vermont.
Six years ago family and friends started Hannah’s House to honor Hannah Bedford who lost her battle with mental illness in 2009. They wanted to provide a much needed mental health resource in the Mad River Valley, help reduce stigma, provide assistance for those unable to pay, and help provide education for children, teens and adults.
Today Hannah’s House sponsors four affiliated counselors, a part time executive director, two licensure track counselors, and a second affiliated office in Waterbury. We collaborate with local schools, help sponsor numerous educational events, and foster alternative therapies including neurofeedback brain training. Our counselors provide group sessions and individual counseling 3 to 4 days a week at Harwood Union.
The athletes of Team Hannah, our volunteers and our donors are a vital part of this success story. Our runners’ dedication and willingness to fundraise for Hannah’s House by running in a very challenging marathon is inspiring to us all. Your generosity in supporting their efforts gives us wings and makes it possible for us to provide mental health services to our community.
We dedicate this run to Hannah and the individuals and families who struggle mentally and emotionally. Life is a marathon; we honor your bravery and courage and we are very grateful to those who run and support the run for mental health.
