Thank You To Ellen’s Run For 10 Fabulous Years!
Mental Health Association would like to thank the organizers of Ellen’s Run, the family of Ellen Vala Schneider and all of the runners who have made this event such a success over the past decade. The dedication and support of everyone involved with the race has resulted in $150,000 of donations to support the MHA and its direct service programs, helping to improve the mental health and well being of the entire community.

Ellen’s Run participant, Ray Miller, joined MHA staff and board members Karen Duffy, MHA Director of Youth and Family Services; Matt Gordon, MHA Development Coordinator; Joy Paul, Secretary, MHA Board of Directors; Kathy McCallum, President, MHA Board of Directors; Emily Kamin, MHA Volunteer Coordinator; and Scot Marken, MHA Chief Executive Officer, at the MHA informational table to greet runners and walkers gathering near the starting line.
Over 500 runners and walkers registered for the 10th Annual Ellen’s Run to go the 5K distance benefitting Mental Health Association and the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Scholarship Fund.
Everyone gathered after the race to thank the Ellen’s Run organizers and recognize all of the winners. MHA’s CEO, Scot Marken, presented flowers to the event’s chairs, Pam Feinstein and Carole Brand, as a token of gratitude for the generous contributions and support of MHA over the past decade.
