January 1, 2016 I lost my best friend since the 4th grade to suicide. He was 33, leaving behind his only daughter, wife, friends and loved ones. To this day he is extremely missed and will never be forgotten. Sadly, this is an ever ending tragedy that continues to grow and that is why I’m helping to team up to help raise funds for Strength 2 Thrive and bring awareness to suicide prevention. To let people know they are not alone and that there is help out there. To let people know they are loved and that breaking that silence can and will make a difference. Kairos – the opportune time because the time is now to help put an end to suicide!
With so many suicides happening each and every day, especially amongst our youth, I ask that you would please consider to giving a gift to support me and my team of reaching $1,000 to put towards our event goal of raising $200,000. Your gift is tax-deductible and all proceeds will go to the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline. You will also receive a gift receipt following the event.
