#GIVINGTUESDAY - Running the Distance for Suicide Prevention!
I'm excited to share with you that I'll be running the 2017 Boston Marathon for team Samaritans!! I am able run in honor of my friend Christian Caldaroni who took his life to suicide. Last year, I was honored by so many friends & family members who donated to this worthy cause. I was equally in awe of those who shared personal stories about how suicide has impacted their lives. Quickly the effort became bigger than me and despite how hard the Boston Marathon is phyiscally, I knew I was going to finish strong.
All proceeds generated from our team effort benefit the Samaritans' suicide prevention services, including 24/7 Crisis Services phone and text help lines, Community Education and Outreach, and Grief Support Services for those who have lost someone to suicide.
Please join me in supporting the lifesaving, free services offered by the Samaritans by donating whatever you can towards my goal of $7,800.
Together, we can prevent future tragedy.
