May is Mental Health Awareness Month!
We want to share some important and fascinating facts about mental health, while also giving you a reason to get out of your house (after all, it’s been a loooonnng pandemic!). Oaklawn invites you to join our Mind Matters Scavenger Hunt from May 1-31! And, for each location you visit on our map, you can submit an entry to win a GoPro HERO9 camera to document your own adventures!
So head out to one of these community gems (look for the bright brain!) and follow the QR code/link.
A PDF copy of the map is available here.
And, there’s a few contest rules: One entry per location, Oaklawn staff/contractors and their families, and staff at our partner sites and their families, are ineligible to win, and the winner must pick up their prize in person and be featured by name and photo on our social media accounts. Full terms and conditions can be found here: www.oaklawn.org/factterms
