BENEFITING: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
ORGANIZER: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Hey there! Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. It's been a long-term goal of mine to run 26.2 in one of my favorite cities. I decided this is the year to quit talkin' the talk and walk the walk (or run the run?). Would love for you to be a part of my journey!
On October 16, 2015, I lost my mom to suicide. She battled mental health issues for years, until the disease was too much to bear and took her life. She was my best friend and not a day goes by that I do not miss her dearly. I will be running this race a couple of weeks after the one year anniversary of her passing, and supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention along the way!
The mission of AFSP is to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. Not only do they help people like me find support, they actively work to prevent suicide through mental health education and activism. Suicide is a leading cause of death in the US and I know way too many people affected by it. Let's change that.
My goal is to raise $3,500 by October 2016. Every donation means more than you will ever know!
