I will be participating in 46 Climbs for Suicide Prevention to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.
I have a goal of completing the 46 ADK High Peaks in the year I turn 46. When I heard about 46Climbs last year after the event, I was determined not to miss this year. So, I have already started my 2017 climbs with one down, 26 to go. 2017's climbs are in memory of Lesley. I didn't know Lesley personally, but I have had the honor of learning more about her through her loving parents Barbara and David.
These climbs are also in memory of a special relative who I never had the privilege to meet. I am also hiking in memory of Cole, David, and feel free to share a photo of someone you would like me to climb for.
AFSP is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 38,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP's mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.
I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.
