This year is a little different than usual as the Overnight walk is now Virtual. If you are able to support during these more challenging times it is greatly appreciated as the struggle with depression and suicide is increased as our "normal" days are quite different and we are more distant from each other.
I’m doing something incredible. This is the second year I am participating in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk - an extraordinary event where participants from all over the country join together to walk 16-18 miles over the course of one night. As many of you know I care about efficiency of charities and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is regularly rated among the top of mental health charities.
I'll be walking for all of my friends and family, and their friends and all who struggle with depression and suicide. The more people I meet, the more I see that Suicide effects everyone, whether it is a struggle as an individual or that of a friend or family member.
I’m fundraising to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Net proceeds will help those affected by suicide and mental health conditions by supporting research, advocacy, survivor resources, education, and awareness programs. AFSP has set a bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by the year 2025, and I'm proud to be part of that mission.
Did you know that in young people ages 15-30, having chronic pain or a chronic illness increases the likelihood of attempting suicide by 3 times!
Donations of $250+ will receive a homemade 9"X13" tray of Spanakopita, but any size donation helps!
Thank you for your support in a cause I believe in. Together we can save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.
