Run for the Samaritans

THE STORY:

On October 12, 2013, I will be running the Hartford Half Marathon to honor the memory of my son's best friend Douglas B, Horak, who took his life on Sept. 7, 2012. As the one year anniversary approaches, I've decided to run to raise funds to support the Samaritans of Boston. "Samaritans' mission is to reduce the incidence of suicide. We do this by providing free services in greater Boston and Metrowest communities that alleviate despair, isolation, distress and suicidal feelings among individuals in our community; by educating the public about suicide prevention; and by working to reduce the stigma associated with suicide."

Douglas Horak was an amazingly talented artist and a beloved family friend. His untimely death devastated our family. I sincerely hope that by raising awareness about the Samaritans' mission and by supporting their efforts, further tragedies can be prevented.
