BENEFITING: Goetz Mental Wellness Initiative
ORGANIZER: Imagine Thriving
EVENT: Fargo Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
Why am I participating again this year and raising money for Imagine Thriving....... Haley!!!! Haley is 1 of the 11% of Fargo area 9th-12th graders who has attempted suicide and 1 of the 25% who has “been so sad or hopeless every day for two or more weeks in a row that they stopped doing some usual activities” in the last 12 months. This is why Haley is in Utah right now getting help to learn to cope. There were not enough resources here to help her so she had to ...go to another state, away from family and her support system.
These are not numbers – they are other children besides mine. They are your nieces and nephews, your daughter’s boyfriend, your neighbors’ kids, even your child. They need our help, Haley needs your help. Schools need our help – they are not equipped with the resources to support students who are struggling. We can come together as a community and help these students get the resources they need to overcome.
Please consider donating to this amazing organization so others like Haley do not have to continue to suffer because of a lack of resources.
