Did you know that the average American household only receives one personal letter every seven weeks?
Still I Run hopes to bring back the trend of letter writing with RUN.WRITE.FIGHT.
A NOTE FROM SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS
RUN.WRITE.FIGHT aims to connect people in the spirit of mental health. Sometimes, when we’re going through a rough patch, the sentiments that mean the most to us are the ones that come from people that truly understand the pain of mental illness; the people that can truly empathize with another about what it feels like to have a mental health condition.
Still I Run is a mental health advocacy group and running community. While there may be mental health or health professionals present, they should not be used as direct resources for help and their posts should not be considered a substitute for professional advice.
Request a Letter
If you find yourself in a dark place and just want a note of encouragement, we’ll send one your way. No strings attached. Yup, that’s right. We promise someone will take an actual pen to paper and write you a quick note, letting you know that it’s ok to not be ok.
If there’s one thing we understand here at Still I Run it’s that mental illness can suck. We hope, that with RUN.WRITE.FIGHT, we can help bring a bit of light to another person’s day. (Plus, let’s bring back letter writing!)
You can request a letter for yourself, or a loved one.
“I am kind of embarrassed to admit that I actually made the request on behalf of myself. However, being that self-requests were an option, I think others must have done so before as well. The letter I received was much needed (and truly appreciated) more than I can effectively describe. Thank you so much for developing this program."
“My brother in law really appreciated the letter of encouragement. He said it was exactly what he needed at exactly the right time.Thank you for the work you do. It matters. "
