BENEFITING: SAMARITANS OF NEW YORK INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 25, 2016
It's almost here . . . the 4th Annual 'BE A FRIEND' 5K Walkathon to supports Samaritans Suicide Prevention Center, whose mission is to help New Yorkers in distress and save lives.
Samaritans operates NYC's only 24-hour suicide prevention hotline, support groups that provide solace to those who have been touched by suicide, and education programs that teach the public and health professionals how to help people in crisis.
Most of us know someone who struggles with mental illness, trauma, sexual abuse, or bullying- and likely all of us have needed someone to talk to at some point. However, suicide is still a taboo subject, and that stigma means very few people think to make charitable donations to Samaritans.
Please support my efforts to help this unique community-based organization continue its all-important, life-saving work. Every donation is 100% tax-deductible. Thank you!
