To sum it up, this past year has been hard. My sister, Meg Durand, passed away last year on January 24th 2016 and throughout the year I have experienced many "firsts" without her. The first big one I remember was Easter, not a huge deal because all of our family wasn't always together during Easter, but it was uncomfortable without her presence. This time, it didn't feel like Meg was at college. The year continued like this and honstly, it didn't get any easier. But then I took on this walk, and things started to change. I started to put all of my energy into making this event one that our town will always remember.
Suicide prevention is such an important cause and I have made it my mission to spread awareness and fundraise for it. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24. Join the fight to break this statistic.
Thank you so much for all the support I have already recieved. It has meant so much to me.
