RUN, JOG, WALK TO SUPPORT SUICIDE PREVENTION IN RHODE ISLAND
SUPPORT TEAM SAMARITANSRI!
As the Executive Director of The Samaritans of Rhode Island, I am excited to help create and participate in our first Team Samaritans RI to run in the Citizens Bank Pell Bridge Run. This event will hopefully be an annual fund raiser for our organization and will grow each year.
This event will also be our newest effort to help break the stigma associated with seeking help for suicidal ideation and for grief support when someone has lost a loved one or friend to suicide.
In more than 25 years of work in the nonprofit world, nothing has captured my heart and my soul quite like suicide prevention. I made the first donation of $100 to our TEAM in honor of our volunteers, past and present, who listen to the hopeless, alone, suicidal and the grieving. They are truly special individuals who listen with unselfish compassion to the most pained among us. I am so proud of each and everyone one of them.
Our goal is $30,000. Funding will enable The Samaritans to keep our volunteer based programs free of charge to all Rhode Islanders.
