Hey everyone! My name is Yui Nakagawa and I am a senior at the University of Pittsburgh. I originally signed up for the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in order to celebrate college graduation, but since then I have changed my purpose for this run.
I want to run in honor of Madison Holleran, the trackstar of our high school, Northern Highlands Regional High School and University of Pennsylvania. She was not only a star at these prestigeous academic institutions, but also a shining star in our community. All of my heart goes out to Madison, her family, friends, and our community.
My goal is to raise money for suicide awareness in order to prevent suicide by benefitting the non-profit organization, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Let us help others get out of the dark stages in their lives and bloom through the beautiful celebrations that we are living in. We only get one chance. Remember: "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly..." So don't give up.
