I am participating in the Rugged Maniac 5k obstacle course not only for myself, but to raise money for a charity I feel very passionate about. When I was a sophmore in high school, my step dad committed suicide. It was difficult to not blame myself for his actions, for not doing something to stop him. There are signs to suicide, but some are difficult to notice. No one should feel the need to take their own life. 800,000 people die a year due to suicide. I am raising money to go towards suicide awareness. Please help spread awareness, give people the help and support needed by many a donation. Thank you.
