Railhead Park, 175 Pacific Ave Auburn, CA

Are you fighting to maintain your mental health? Do you have a friend or loved one who
seems to be on the verge of giving up on life? Everyday living can feel like a neverending
battle for those struggling with mental illness. If left untreated, the consequences for
individuals, families, and communities can be longlasting and even tragic.

Beautiful Minds Wellness is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that aims to inspire and
connect individuals from every walk of life with compassionate, wholeperson mental health
services and education. We have found that a wholistic approach to treating mental illness
enables a healthy, lifelong transformation. Yet the vast majority of people seeking help for
mental illness are unaware of the benefits of this approach and don’t know to explore these
options as part of their treatment.

Step Out of Stigma is an annual walk hosted by Beautiful Minds Wellness to raise funds and
awareness for wholistic mental health education and support. We want more people to find
renewed hope and live abundant lives. During the event, you will learnand potentially
experiencethe connection between emotional wellbeing and exercise, sunshine, healthy
eating, and positive relationships with one another and with God. You will also have access
to resources that can support you on your journey toward mental wellness.

Ready to make a change? You can play an active role in spreading awareness! Walk.
Donate. Raise Funds. In whatever way you choose to participate, you can help make the
world a brighter place for someone who now lives in darkness.

    • Walk and Fundraise: You can join an existing team to fundraise, or you can create your own goal as a solo fundraiser.
  • Walk: You can show your support by joining the walk and inviting your friends, family, and neighbors to come along, even if you don’t donate or fundraise. The more the merrier!
  • Volunteer: Fundraising events would not be possible without our beloved volunteers! If you would like to lend a helping hand during our event, send us an email at or call 530-217-3870. 

Q: What will the funds go towards?

A: Beautiful Minds Wellness has several initiatives planned for this year. Our primary goal is to raise funds to launch our online intensive outpatient program—Overcoming Depression and Anxiety. This 8-week program will have similar content and many of the same instructors as our in person program. We are excited to share these life-changing principles with people all over the world.

Q: Are donations tax-deductible?

A: Yes, as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all donations to Beautiful Minds Wellness are tax-deductible.

Q: What are some effective fundraising ideas?

A: We know fundraising can feel pretty intimidating, so here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Match fund: You can pledge to donate $5 for every $10 given up to a certain amount.
  • Garage Sale: Tell your friends and neighbors that a percentage of the proceeds will go towards this fundraiser.
  • Ask: Sometimes the simplest methods are the best. Tell those you know about the mission of Beautiful Minds Wellness and ask if they would like to contribute. Look how easy it could be to raise $100: 
    • Donate $25 to kickstart your own fundraising campaign
    • Ask a family member to donate $25
    • Ask a friend to donate $25
    • Ask a coworker or church member to donate $25

Remember, every dollar counts, so even a small donation can be celebrated! 

Bake sales, odd jobs, and birthday fundraisers are just a few more fun and effective methods you and your team can use to meet your fundraising goal.

A: Yes, we encourage you to bring your whole family. It’s never too early to start teaching and implementing good mental health principles and practices. You can register children under 12 years old as dependent participants.

A: T-shirts will be available for individuals who raise or donate $50 or more.
