Team Captain Leap for Life Chicagoland Walk


Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

I'm walking in the Out of the Darkness Chicagoland Walk to fight suicide and support AFSP's bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.

Over the past two years,  I have struggled with clinical depression and an anxiety disorder.  Mental health issues are rarely discussed and I believe  that they should be  made more prominent in our society.  I have many friends who have struggled with suicidal thoughts and have attempted, as have I.  Suicide is just as serious as cancer or AIDS, but gets much less media coverage. My personal goal is to raise awareness of this pressing matter and to reduce the stigma associated with it.

Please help me reach my goal by clicking the "Donate" button on this page. All donations are 100% tax deductible and benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), funding research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide.

Thank you for your support!
