Hope for Hallie Color Run in Delaware County raises mental health awareness

A colorful and fun way to mark Mental Health Awareness Month in Delaware County took place Sunday.

The inaugural Hope for Hallie Color Run took place in Swarthmore.


The one-mile run/walk event and color blast was held at the Cades School where more than 250 people came out.

The foundation to promote teenage mental health awareness is named after Swarthmore teenager and high school track star Hallie Jackson, who died by suicide back in 2019.
