The Story

EVENT DATE: May 09, 2015

The Rise Above Fest is a charity festival founded by Seether in 2012 to raise awareness of suicide prevention and mental illness. The name of the festival derives from Seether’s hit song “Rise Above This.” “I lost my brother 7 years ago to suicide and it never gets easier.” says Seether front man Shaun Morgan. “This whole festival came about as a dedication to him. I started this festival as a tribute to anyone who has lost someone. If this festival does something to help one person reconsider the tragic choice of suicide, then it will be the greatest success of my career.”

 

In the US, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death and worldwide someone dies by suicide every 39 seconds (World Health Organization). SAVE’s mission is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, reduce stigma and serve as a resource to those touched by suicide. They strive to eradicate suicide and use their funding to educate nearly 14,000 people every year through various events and programs set up across the country.
