EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.
AFSP Boston is thrilled to have been awarded THREE bibs for 2015. Our goal for 2015 is for our runners to raise at least $60,000. Each runner has committed to helping raise at the least $10,000, with all of them pledging to go far above to help us reach our goal!. We hope you will want to be a part of their success reaching their goals!!
With funds raised, we are planning to host a webinar and distribution of AFSP educational programs – More than Sad, Teen Depression and The Truth about Suicide, to all the high schools around the Commonwealth. We need to provide much needed signs of suicide and depression training throughout the Commonwealth.
