THE STORY:

On May 8-9 my relay team and I are running just under 200 miles across Massachusetts.  This will be my 5th Ragnar Relay and my first as a Team Captain. It will also be the first time I do it officially as an advocate for Brain Health.  My friends Jeremy and Jennifer were among the 20 families whose children never came home from school on Dec. 14th, 2012, because a young man whose brain health issues were not addressed, stormed into the Sandy Hook Elementary School and murdered 6-year-old Avielle, her classmates and 6 adult educators.

I was not going to participate in this year's Cape Cod Ragnar, least of all captain a team, but when Jeremy asked me to organize a team in order to support The Avielle Foundation, it was a no-brainer (sorry, I had to write that). See, my family has also been affected by preventable tragedy (suicide). Almost everyone I know has had their world rocked because either a loved one or they themselves suffer from depression, suicidation, self-injury, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, psychotic episodes, addiction, eating disorders.  I am running because I believe that with every step I take, and every dollar I raise, I am helping us change the culture of fear and hopelessness and helplessness that typically engulfs a family and community that has been affected by brain health issues. I hope you will help me in this cultural and scientific shift.

The Avielle Foundation  is a non-profit organization that supports Brain Health Research, Community engagement and education. Our mission is to prevent violence toward self and others, and build compassion through neuroscience research and community education. We are making the invisible visible and empowering communities. We are running from stigma toward brain health. Please Help us. Support our team here, follow our progress at www.aviellefoundation.org, like us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/aviellefoundation), and tweet us on Twitter @Aviefoundation.
