In honor of T.J. Sefcik who died by suicide on December 1, 2010 at the age of 16 we are joining the community of nearly 250k people walking in hundreds of cities across the country in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.
T.J. was a gift to all who were blessed to know him. He was funny, out-going, intelligent, athletic and sensitive, but he also suffered from depression and he lost his battle with the disease on that day in December 2010. Since then we have learned so much about suicide risk and mental health issues. We firmly believe no one should die by suicide. Research, education and raising awareness will save lives and this is what AFSP is all about.
