Create a "stand-alone" fundraising team! Members may be anyone you know .. runners, friends, neighbors, etc. who may or may not run in the race but want to support our cause.
Make the fundraising team be your team this year, as we have no 2020 running teams. Associate the name with your group or family of virtual runners or simply make it a cause in itself. 100% of money raised will support the services of our local mental health clinic, Airport Marina Counseling Service. All funds raised by your team goes directly to Airport Marina Counseling Service (AMCS).
The mission of Airport Marina Counseling Service (AMCS) is two-fold: to provide affordable, community-based mental health services and to train mental health therapists. They have continued to offer their services throughout the pandemic by providing online therapy. Going forward they will provide both online & in-house therapy making them even more accessible to those in need and at sliding scale fees.
AMCS is a nonprofit, community-based mental health clinic that has been serving the greater LAX region since 1961. From its opening in 1961 to now, AMCS has continued to grow and expand it programs and services. Today, they serve hundreds of individuals, children and families and couples at their primary clinic in Westchester and several off-site locations that include local schools and The Boys & Girls Club of Venice. All services are provided on a sliding-scale basis, 7 days a week.
AMC’s therapeutic services include family therapy, individual therapy, psychiatric services, case management, couples counseling, therapeutic group sessions, immediate intervention, and most recently, AMCS became a LGBTQI Center.
There are no geographical boundaries for eligibility to receive their services. Their doors are open to all in need of their services.
