Parkside’s By Your Side Run promotes physical fitness while raising funds for the By Your Side program benefiting Parkside’s clients and their families. The event features a 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Dog Walk. The dogs have been a great addition to the event and in past years, Parkside even brought out some of our pet therapy animals to participate.
Since 1959, Parkside has been by your side providing quality mental health services with excellence and compassion. In addition to Parkside's comprehensive psychiatric services, Parkside also delivers a number of other services that further overall health and well being through the By Your Side program. This program allows clients in need to receive at no cost:
- Non –perishable food and personal hygiene items for themselves and family members.
- Clothing for themselves and family members.
- Transportation assistance through bus tokens and taxi vouchers for those without other means of transportation to and from Parkside.
- Books to encourage reading and feed active minds!

About the weather:
While we realize that each of the By Your Side run participants has made a tremendous commitment, the primary goal for the event staff is to ensure a safe and fun event for everyone. Therefore, the race staff will make decisions about the race cancellations/modifications based on the safety of all that are involved - this includes the participants, the volunteers, the spectators and pets. The race staff reserves the right to cancel or to modify the race if deemed necessary due to potentially hazardous conditions. It is the intent of the race staff to host a rain or shine event, however potentially hazardous conditions including thunderstorms, wind, hail or lightning may force cancellation. These conditions will be recognized as unforeseeable acts. Since the staging of the race results in substantial up-front expenses regardless of whether or not the race is completed, cancellation of the race will not result in the refunding of race entry fees or future race credits. Race staff will be on site and you can visit about weather considerations with them. Please watch weather conditions yourself and make informed decisions.
