BENEFITING: Samaritans

EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016

THE STORY:

Thanks to the John Hanock Non-Profit Marathon Program, this is the ninth consecutive year that Samaritans has received bib numbers for our Marathon Team. All proceeds generated from this year's team will benefit Samaritans' suicide prevention services including our 24/7 Crisis Services including emotional support to young people via text. Last year, we answered over 142,000 calls and more than 900 chats; our prevention services reached almost 13,000 people through our Community Education and Outreach Program workshops; and our Grief Support Services provided more than 900 connections to those who have lost a loved one to suicide.

"To the heart of Gold Band at Samaritans: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping me afloat for over a decade. I have called from the streets, from payphones, addicted to hard drugs and alcohol, and I have called from some of the fiercest penitentiaries in this country. There is no question in my mind, heart and soul that I would not be alive today without the incredible folks at Samaritans. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and all of yours, and many, many more. Only happy and healthy ones to you and all of yours. Forever indebted." - A Crisis Helpline Caller, December 18, 2012

Each day - because of donors like you - Samaritans is able to provide a moment of light and hope to people who are struggling, isolated, or feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes the warmth of a voice and the ear of someone who cares is all any of us needs to make it through a difficult moment. For more information about Samaritans life-saving programs, please visit us atwww.samaritanshope.org.

Last year's team raised an incredible $142,000 for Samaritans and we are hoping to building upon their success in 2016! There are many ways to help us reach our ambitious goal:
