I will be running my first Eversource Hartford Marathon on behalf of the Jordan Porco Foundation. This foundation is near and dear to my heart.
You can help save lives by donating to 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!
The Jordan Porco Foundation's programs, Fresh Check Day, 4 What's Next, and Nine out of Ten, strive to start a conversation about mental health that reduces stigma while encouraging help-seeking and supportive behaviors.
“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.”
