Alive & Running 2020
HELP SAVE LIVES!
Join Didi Hirsch’s 22nd annual
Alive & Running 5K for Suicide Prevention —
a Virtual Event!
Didi Hirsch’s annual Alive & Running 5K for Suicide Prevention raises funds and awareness for Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center, a national resource offering a continuum of services for people affected by suicide. It also includes activities to connect survivors of suicide loss.
Alive & Running always takes place during September, which is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. This year’s 22nd annual event will be virtual—which means we are hosting online activities to connect our community and inviting past participants and new supporters to run or walk, separately but together, in the safety of their own neighborhoods on Sunday, Sept. 13.
Here are some ways you can get involved and support suicide prevention:
1. REGISTER & SET A FUNDRAISING GOAL! Once registered, customize your fundraising page by sharing your story and setting a goal. Ask family and friends for support. *To get your T-shirt and memory bib before race day — register by Aug. 19 at noon PST!
