Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
On January 14th, I will be 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. This time, I will not only be walking in memory of my younger brother, Billy, who was lost to suicide but also in tribute to my dear mother, Carole Ray Colosky Rutherford, who was a fierce advocate for the AFSP. Many of you supported me over the years with your generous donations in the Overnight Walks I started walking in 2006. What some of you may not know is that my mother was always right there with me. In fact, she had a much tougher job than walking...she was a volunteer crew member and team leader who worked extremely hard to make things happen! She was extremely passionate about this cause and I am so happy I was able to share these many experiences with her. It breaks my heart to say that my mom was supposed to be volunteering at this upcoming walk in San Antonio. With her sudden passing on Saturday, I know this is where I need to be and I am certain she will be there too... watching from above. I love you Mom.
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.
