by your side run




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/Walk.  We added a dog walk as a part of the fun run and it has enjoyed great popularity with walkers, runners and dogs.

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.

Information for Potential Sponsors

Parkside was founded a half-century ago to provide psychiatric services to residents of Tulsa and surrounding areas. Parkside is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, serving mostly Tulsa area adults, children and adolescents with inpatient acute, inpatient residential, and outpatient services. Parkside’s employees are a caring, dedicated team of health care professionals focused on Parkside’s mission to improve the quality of life of those affected by mental illness and related disorders by providing care with excellence and compassion

Hundreds of boys and girls who suffer with depression, mood disorders, trauma, abuse, and behavioral problems have benefited from the facility and the work of its skilled, caring professionals. Many of the boys and girls have never known a warm, supportive home environment. Some have been abused. Most live in poverty. More than half of the children served live in households with annual incomes less than $10,000. Parkside’s staff work hard to provide opportunities and experiences that will benefit the youth we work with. Adults served at Parkside struggle with similar life concerns along with mental health and substance abuse treatment needs. At times, we reach out to community partners for assistance.

In addition to quality health care, we offer, through our “By Your Side” programs:

Medications for those who can not afford these vital treatments. Food, clothing, school supplies and personal hygiene items for eligible patients and their families and transportation assistance for patients who are unable to travel to and from Parkside for treatment. We also, with the help of Volunteers of America, offer books to children to promote reading and learning.

We’re proud of this work; however, in order for the patient assistance to continue we’re planning a 5K Fun Run on April 13, to raise funds for the By Your Side programs. We hope to have around 500 participants including staff, sponsor employees, RUNNER'S WORLD mailing list followers and the general public. Proceeds from the run will exclusively help support the By Your Side programs and we hope you will be by our side on that day.

Monetary or practical donations will help patients and their families and provide you or your business with a tax-deduction, all at the same time. You are, of course, cordially invited to join in the fun, too.

We hope you will consider this opportunity and sponsor what we think is an important and vital cause. More importantly, we know your support will help individuals and families recover every day.
