Labor day weekend I will be hiking in the White mountains of NH to raise funds for Mental Health and suicide prevention. I will climb Mount Moriah(one of the 4,000 footers of NH). This is my 3rd year participating in 46 climbs. This organization enables people to hike mountains to shed light on the prevalence of mental health issues with the goal of ending suicide. The money raised goes to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention(AFSP). They are leading the way towards reducing the stigma of mental illness and offer support to those affected by it.
I hike in honor of my brother John.(the man who taught me about Forsythias)
I hike in honor of all those I have known who felt they had no hope.
Help me spread the good news that there is hope and we can all heal from depression.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health through education and community programs, develops suicide prevention through research and advocacy, and provides support for those affected by suicide. Led by CEO Robert Gebbia and headquartered in New York, AFSP has local chapters in all 50 states with programs and events nationwide.
