As an official LA Marathon Charity Partner, we are recruiting team members to run on behalf of the Campaign to Change Direction. Team members will raise funds to support the Campaign and will have the opportunity to train and run together. They will receive team benefits, including a team shirt, training tips, group training runs and a chance to win a FitBit.

This is such an exciting opportunity to get more people actively involved in the Campaign to Change Direction's mission to change the culture surrounding mental health in America, said Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, Founder and President of Give an Hour. The LA Marathon has an amazing track record of amplifying charitable giving, and were honored to be on the receiving end of such nationwide generosity.

About the charity

The Campaign to Change Direction, a international initiative to change the culture of mental health, encouraging everyone to care for their mental well-being just as they do their physical well-being. The campaign is led by Give an Hour, a national nonprofit organization providing free mental health services to the military community and other at risk populations. Change Direction addresses common barriers to understanding mental health and raises awareness about Five Signs that may indicate someone is suffering emotionally and needs help: change in personality, agitation, withdrawal, decline in personal care, and hopelessness. More than 600 partner organizations are using their unique skills and opportunities to spread awareness. Furthermore, in 2017, Talinda Bennington partnered with Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, President and Founder of Give an Hour, to create 320 Changes Direction – a new component of the Campaign to Change Direction. 320 Changes Direction was named in honor of Talinda’s late husband Chester Bennington- father of six, philanthropist, and lead singer of Linkin Park- who died by suicide in July, 2017. Talinda serves as Ambassador for the Campaign to Change Direction and Founding Partner of 320 Changes Direction.
