Support the Cause


Our Mission

Our mission for the Break the Silence 5k is to eradicate the stigma surrounding mental health. Through our annual event, we raise funds for a local organization dedicated to mental health awareness and crisis intervention. Join us in breaking the silence, fostering open conversations, and building a supportive community where everyone's voice is heard. Together, we aim for a world where mental health takes precedence, ensuring that no one faces their challenges alone.

Originating in 2011 as a Sigma Pi Fraternity initiative in memory of our late brother, Marc Haege, the Break the Silence 5K has evolved into a growing annual event. Since its inception, we have raised upwards of $25,000/year for a local organization, with increasing participation and donations each year. Our goal is to donate $100,000 to further support mental health efforts. Join us in making a difference – let's break the silence together.
