Nikisha Falcone Memorial 5K

A personal campaign sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega @ UVM

April 19, 2021


Dear Friends,

I am a UVM student partnering with Alpha Phi Omega, a co-educational service organization, to plan the Nikisha Falcone Memorial 5K. Last year and the year before, we ran this event to commemorate the loss of our dear friend Nikisha, who died by suicide in September 2018.

The 5K is currently scheduled to take place on April 18, 2021 at and around the UVM Interfaith Center. Everyone is welcome, and registration will be by suggested donation. All donations will go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention per Nikisha’s family’s request. Last two years, we were fortunate enough to raise over $10,000 to further suicide prevention research and education. This year, we are dreaming even bigger.

I am writing to request any monetary donations that you might be able to offer. Our event could not have been a success last year without the generous contributions of friends invested in leaving a positive community impact. If you are interested in supporting the 2021 Nikisha Falcone Memorial 5K, please be in touch to let me know what you would like your role to look like. I would also be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you!
