BryanLGH will hold its second annual Run to Overcome on Sept. 30.
The race is in memory of BryanLGH critical care nurse Adam Zetterman. He suffered from depression, without reaching out to his family, friends or co-workers for help. He ended his own life in April 2010. He was 36 years old.
“We didn’t have the chance to help Adam,” said his sister, Amy Olson, “but we hope that this race helps others talk openly about their depression -- to reach out and get help.”
Last year, nearly 800 people from 13 different states participated in Adam’s Race. Registration for this year’s five-kilometer run/walk and 10k run will be accepted through Sept. 28. However, people who register before Sept. 17 will receive a free Run to Overcome T-shirt.
Proceeds will be used to provide education programs on depression and other mental health topics at BryanLGH.
The one-mile kids’ run for ages 12 and under begins at 12:30 p.m. The $10 registration fee includes a T-shirt.
The adult 5k and 10k runs begin at 1 p.m. at Lincoln Southwest High School Track, 7001 S. 14th St. Registration is $20 with free T-shirt; $25 for dri-fit shirt.
