BENEFITING: HC COMMITMENT INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 12, 2015
22 Veterans commit suicide a day.This fundraiser is going along with a 5k that I am organizing for September 12th. The main purpose of this run and fundraiser is to not only raise suicide awareness, but to inspire or motivate individuals to not give up when times get rough. Or to inspire individuals to be that shoulder to lean on when people around them hit those road bumps that can discourage them . A lot of times it is considered a weak act to talk about the battles we face or to be that shoulder to lean on. However, it is completely the opposite, when someone seeks a listening ear or someone to give them advice on how to overcome a road bump, they are attempting to find ways to make their circumstances opportunities and grow from what ever negative situation they are dealing with. I chose to donate to this organization not only because they have a focus in suicide prevention but because they are all about showing how these negative stigmas, like people seeking help when they are down, are actually be something positive. So any donations are appreciated, or if you want to volunteer with 22KILL that's even better. Thank you for your time!
