  • Suicide prevention merchandise will be sold
  • PRIZES for top teams
  • Fun for the whole family while raising awareness for this important health issue
  • More details to come, so stay tuned!

While it's been a year of uncertainty, there are a few things we know for sure:

  • You belong to a strong community united in an effort to fight suicide while showing up for yourself, recognizing and honoring those you love, raising awareness, educating communities, supporting one another, and sharing hope.
  • We remain dedicated to providing you with opportunities to connect, heal, share stories, create impact, and show you that you are not alone.
  • Mental Health and suicide prevention are more important than ever, and we’re confident that with your help we can reach more people than ever before.
