Family and friends mean the world to me so when you have one that battles with severe depression, all you want to do is help. Running for the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is my way of helping those in need.
About a year ago I had a very close family member hospitalized for trying to take his life. I felt powerless because I didn't know how to help and it was so unexpected. Every day is a new day and he seems to be getting better now that he has a stronger support group surrounding him.
Another occurrence that made me want to run for the AFSP happened 15 years ago when my best friend's mother took her life. At the time my best friend was only twelve and her older brother was sixteen years old. Even though this unfortunate event happened so long ago, it has left them with an unbelievable sadness that will never go away.
Now that you know my story, I am excited to start raising money and run for a cause I feel so strongly connected. Large or small I am greatly appreciative of your support!
