Samaritans Suicide Prevention Center is very excited to be a part of the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon!
By making a donation to Samaritans 'Be A Friend' running team, you will be taking an important step in joining Samaritans staff and network of over 100 caring volunteers on our mission to prevent suicide.
Samaritans operates the only community-based organization in the NYC area devoted solely to helping people in distress and saving lives for over 30 years.
In that time, hundreds of Samaritans volunteers responded to 1.3 million calls on our 24-hour crisis hotline, our public education program trained over 40,000 health providers and our support groups for survivors of suicide loss provided solace to over 1,000 people.
Your support will enable us to continue our important work as well as raise awareness about the current suicide epidemic and the keys to addressing it.
