San Antonio Walk


In loving memory of Peter Charles “Charlie” Gaa IV.
February 23, 1985 - April 26, 1999

In honor of Charlie’s life — from his hilarious impersonations of Jim Carrey, his unwavering kindness, and his unbeatable loving heart, to his incredible track/field and football skills — I am walking in the Out of the Darkness San Antonio Walk to fight suicide and support AFSP's bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.

We are considered the “survivors of suicide,” the families and friends who have lost someone to the tragedy of suicide. To all the “survivors,” I pray for your healing and peace. Unbeknownst to my family, Charlie suffered psychological and emotional pain, and he unfortunately suffered in silence.  I humbly believe the first step in suicide prevention is creating a judgement-free atmosphere conducive to open communication, allowing those who suffer in silence to reach out for help via family and friends.  

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING: If you come across someone who you think might be suffering mentally, remind them that their life is important and precious; remind them of the many ways to get help whether it’s a crisis hotline, crisis center, emergency room, or church.

WANNA REDUCE YOUR TAXES? 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!

Love, Lily
