Kilos for Kofkin
February 04, 2017

Good evening, friends! I wanted to take a moment to update you all on the fundraiser and make a few announcements.  First, I would like to See More

EVENT DATE Feb 04, 2017

THE STORY:

The Hastings Kofkin Memorial Fund serves to honor the life of Hastings Kofkin and raise awareness about mental illness. The money raised will be used in order to facilitate Kilos for Kofkin on February 4, 2017 in High Point, NC and the remainder will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in Hastings' honor.

On May 11th, 2016, my best friend Hastings took his own life after a long, hard battle with depression. He fought his deamons for years in secret, all the while putting on a happy face for the people around him. Anyone that knew him will tell you that he was the most ambitious, kind, selfless, amazing person they had ever had the pleasure of knowing. In his memory, a dedicated group of his loved ones are working to raise money to organize a 5k and memorial event in his honor to shed some light on mental illness and its impact. Mental illness is something that has been made so taboo in our society that people feel that they must suffer in silence for fear of being labeled and cast out for being "broken" or "crazy." This must change. It shouldn't take a tragedy like this to initiate an open dialogue about the importance of maintaining your mental health and supporting those around you who may be plagued by demons that you cannot see or understand. You may not have known him well, but he was an amazing person who deserved so much more than this. Please donate and share this page with everyone you know and stay tuned for details on the Hastings Kofkin Memorial Fund. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
