I am running this year's Falmouth Road Race on August 18th, on behalf of the Cape and Islands Suicide Prevention Coalition (CISPC).
The mission of CISPC is to help give Cape Cod and the Islands communities the necessary information and tools to raise awareness, promote education and increase action to reduce suicides.
Suicide is the second leading cause for death around the world in people ages 10-34, and it is the 10th leading cause for all deaths in the United States. In the Cape and Island communities - the suicide rate is 1.5 times higher than the rest of the state of Massachusetts.
I am honored to be running for CISPC as Cape Cod has always held a special place in my heart.
CISPC offers free & subsidized suicide prevention trainings to our local community, businesses and organizations.
