Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
This will be my 5th community walk in Westchester with Team Round Hill Drew. In June I also completed my third Overnight walking 18 miles through beautiful Washington D.C! Since 2012, I have walked in 4 Community walks with Team Round Hill Drew in Westchester and 2 other Overnights - Philadelphia & NYC. These walks are always a great experience and amazing opportunity to connect with others who have felt the pain of a loss from suicide.
Last year in New York City, while I was walking, Jeremy was making some of those connections with other cheerleaders from Texas. Those astonishing women supported me and cheered me on at every single stop along the 18 mile walk - even the stops Jeremy couldn't make it to. After that memorable night last year I was delighted to be join their team for the Washington DC walk <3 Team You are Loved Louder a.k.a. Team Y'ALL (how fitting for Texans!)
I personally walk for my brother, Andrew, who we lost in November 2012 to suicide at 19 years old. I also walk for my mother, Meta, who left us in December of 2000 by suicide, and my grandmother, Meta, who died by suicide in 2003. Walking helps me to remember them & to feel connected to them. More importantly, I do not want more families to have to feel that pain and be left with a huge question that will never be answered - WHY? With the work that the AFSP does with each of your donations, we get one step closer to never having to ask that question again.
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.
