THE STORY:

On Sunday, September 24 I'll be participating in the 5th Annual 'BE A FRIEND' 5K Walkathon to support Samaritans Suicide Prevention Center's work to help New Yorkers who are in distress and suicidal and save lives.

 

NYC's only community-based organization devoted to preventing suicide, Samaritans operates NYC's 24-hour suicide hotline, support groups that provide solace to those touched by suicide, and education programs that teach health providers how to help those who are depressed and in crisis.

 

Whenever a person in distress feels overwhelmed and needs a place to turn, needs someone to talk to--Samaritans is there!

 

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US and 1 out of 5 Americans experience depression each year.  Though most of us know someone who struggles with problems related to mental health, trauma, or a significant loss,  very few people make charitable donations to prevent suicide.

 

So please support my efforts--and those of Samaritans 100+ caring volunteers and friends--to help Samaritans meet the increasing need in NYC for suicide prevention and crisis response services.  It is a wonderful organization doing life-saving work. Every donation is 100% tax-deductible and will help the Samaritans continue to operate their hotline, survivor, and public education programs.
