I am running this 5K in support of a dear friend who put together a running team in honor of her significant other, Gary. Gary became a friend not too long ago; I unfortunately did not get the chance to know him better, but every time I saw him, he was always smiling. He was a smart kid, majored in chemistry, played D1 football in the Navy, and had a great future ahead of him. Tragically, Gary died by suicide this past February, and it was a completely unexpected loss that affected many people in all aspects of his life, past and present. Now more than ever, I am always reminded to “Be kind - you never know what someone else is going through.”

The proceeds from this event support a variety of services for suicide prevention and loss survivors.

Suicide rates nationwide have risen over 30% among almost every age group, gender, ethnicity and financial status. In 2018, more than 47,000 Americans died by suicide—more than by car accidents or homicide. And for every death by suicide, about 30 people attempt it.

Please join me in supporting Didi Hirsch’s 21st annual Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention on Sunday, Sept. 29.

The event is the only one that supports Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center—the first and most comprehensive in the United States and a national resource for healing and hope. Their doors are open to anyone who has been touched to suicide—regardless of their ability to pay. But they need your help to continue providing their lifesaving services.

With your support, we can save more lives!

Please register to run with our team: “Alexandra Russell BEMG” or help us reach our goal by donating to my individual page or our team’s page.

Thank you for your support,
