Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
As you know, suicide prevention is near and dear to my heart. Again, this year, I will be co-chairing the 2017 American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness Community Walk. This year's walk will be on Saturday, October 28th at 1pm at Romare Beardon Park in Uptown Charlotte.
For the past two years, my family created a team to raise money and participate in the walk. The team is called TEAM GREGG. This team was created in honor of my brother, Gregg Doulé, who as you know, took his life on September 17, 2014 at the age of 35. Gregg was amazing....extremely handsome, brilliant and athletic. He graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech, was the captain of the swim team at Virginia Tech and was he was awarded the Atlantic 10 Academic Male Student Athlete of the year in 2000. At the time of his death, he was the Commercial Director of GE Energy in Atlanta, GA. He created a patent that reduced liquid discharge in wet flue gas desulfurization. He traveled all over the world and had even lived in Milan, Italy for numerous years. But sadly, Gregg suffered terribly from depression, which ultimately took his life. DEPRESSION STOLE GREGG from us.
Depression and mental illness are horrible diseases that need more research, funding and attention given them.
