Blair Balchunas' Fundraiser:

Miles In Memory

Blair's Photo

BENEFITING: Samaritans

EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013

Blair Balchunas

THE STORY:

On October 12th I will be participating in the ING Hartford Half Marathon. I will be running to raise awareness about suicide prevention. Specifically, I will be running to commemorate the lives of three beautiful souls lost to suicide: Dan Romanos, Andrew Mathers & Doug B. Horak.

If you or someone you know has been affected by suicide, please consider a donation to the Samaritans of Boston, whose purpose is to "alleviate despair, isolation, distress and suicidal feelings among individuals in our community, 24 hours a day; to educate the public about suicide prevention; and to reduce the stigma associated with suicide."

For more about my journey, and to read about my progress and see photos as I train, please visit my blog & Instagram page:
