1N5 event to support mental health education for teens

Saturday, May 21, 6:30-11 p.m., McGruder home, Cincinnati

In hopes of stemming suicide in young people, the James W. Miller Memorial Fund will host two fundraising events this year – the new 1N5 event May 21 and the seventh annual Warrior Run on Oct. 1.

1N5 is an evening of light bites, drinks, live music, a silent auction and a presentation by Santa Ono, president of the University of Cincinnati.

The Warrior Run is a family-oriented 5K and 1-mile walk in the village of Mariemont, complete with a kids’ fun run and a celebration after the race including food, drinks, a silent auction and a family movie at dark.

The event began as a celebration of the life of James Miller, who took his own life in 2008. To honor his spirit, the race later partnered with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to raise money for its suicide prevention program, Surviving the Teens. In 2015, the Warrior Run raised $104,000, most of it for Surviving the Teens.

Tickets to 1N5 are $100.
