The Jordan Porco Foundation (JPF) is an official charity partner of this year's Hartford Marathon on October 12, 2019! I've worked for JPF for 7 years, am a suicide attempt survivor, and a marathon finisher! Though I've hung up my running shoes, they'll be making a special appearance for the 5K in support of a cause and an organization near and dear to my heart. Please consider making a donation or joining the team!
You can help save lives by supporting the IN IT 4 LIFE Jordan Porco Foundation Eversource Hartford Marathon team!
Why is it important to be #InIt4Life, supporting raising mental health awareness and suicide prevention? Suicide is a serious public health concern. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young adults ages 15-24. Suicide can happen to anyone, anywhere. But you can help prevent suicide by supporting the Jordan Porco Foundation's lifesaving programs. Together, "We're In It For Life!" That's our pledge to young adults across the nation, and our team cheer - #InIt4Life!
“I love Fresh Check Day! I think it is a critical program for college students. As a survivor of a suicide attempt, I felt loved and seen during the festivities of Fresh Check Day. I also felt empowered to reach out my hand to other struggling peers. This is an integral part of college programming.”
