With a focus on health and happiness, hundreds participated in the E-Racing the Blues for the Mental Health Association in Delaware on Sunday at Wilmington’s Riverfront.

In the 14th annual run/walk for mental health, some supporters wore shirts with the slogan, “Keep calm and talk to someone.” And joggers were certainly stress-free they crossed the finish line.

Research shows that the psychological and physical benefits of exercise can help reduce anxiety and improve mood. So the MHA made certain every type of runner or walker could take part; the race featured a 10K run, a 5K run, a 5K competitive walk and a 5K recreational walk.

Taking first place in both runs (not fair!) was Dan Segers, age 28, who had a chip time of 34.50 in the 10K run and 17.49 in the 5K run. The Mental Health Association in Delaware raised $75,000 with this year’s event.
