DAY TO GO

THE STORY:

Andy Welch is one of the 20-25 % of adult Americans who suffer from depression. For more than 10 years, Andy suffered in silence. In early 2015, he had fallen into a place so dark he couldn’t see light or hope. He could envision ending his life and was frightened. Out of desperation, he clung to anyone so he would not be alone. Fortunately, Andy was lucky. He had the support of family and friends who helped him admit and seek treatment for his depression. Many aren’t lucky like Andy. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for 15 – 24 year olds. But, there is help, if people are able to speak up. Eighty to 90 percent of teens who seek treatment for depression are treated successfully. Andy is partnering with the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation to help reduce the stigma associated with depression and give hope to others, especially youth, who are suffering silently. In 2017, Andy will join a select few who will compete in the world’s top endurance cycling event: Race Across America. Andy must traverse 3,000 miles, across 12 states, climb over 170,000 vertical feet in a maximum of 12 days. He will travel 250-350 miles each day balancing speed and the need for sleep. Andy will use Race Across America as a platform for raising awareness for the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation.  Andy's goal is to help as many people as possible know there is hope, and they are not alone. Sufferers don’t need to suffer in silence. Life doesn’t have to be dark and scary. Help is there, but the hardest part is speaking up. To learn more about Andy’s racing visit: www.Andywelch.net.  To learn more about Race Across America visit: http://www.raceacrossamerica.org

All funds raised will support Andy's race and the programs offered at CKG Foundation directly offered to teens.
