In Loving Memory of Julie Romain

Brian Rosenberg

Brian Rosenberg

This is the third Alive & Running event since Julie died. Each time I put together this site, I feel I'm falling short in coming up with something to write about my beloved sister that will blow everyone's mind... get across what an exceptionally beautiful human being she was... she deserves that. Alas, words don't suffice, as anyone who knew Julie would agree. I miss you, Julie!

Please consider a donation in memory of Julie. The first $1,000 raised will be matched dollar to dollar... so you can have double the impact! I thank you in advance.

If you're not already familiar with the lifesaving work going on at Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services Suicide Prevention Center, here you go:

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 by suicide—regardless of their ability to pay. But they need your help to continue providing their lifesaving services.

Please register, donate, sponsor or volunteer for Alive & Running today.
Your support helps:

- SAVE LIVES by training crisis counselors for our 24/7 multilingual Crisis Line, where calls have quadrupled in the last 10 years;

- STRENGTHEN THE SAFETY NET by teaching more students, teachers, parents, firefighters, police officers and mental health professionals to recognize and respond to warning signs;

- PROVIDE HEALING by offering more therapy and support groups to suicide attempt and loss survivors, and special groups for teens bereaved by suicide;

- ADVANCE THE FIELD by partnering with university researchers developing and testing new programs in suicide prevention.

Founded in 1958, Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center has innovated many of the strategies that are used at other centers around the United States—and world. In response to rising demand, Didi Hirsch relocated its Center to a new building in Century City last year. Since we opened the doors, many people have seen the sign and come in for help.

With your support, we can save more lives! Please register, donate or sponsor today!

Brian, a wonderful cause. My husband lost his father to suicide thirty-five years ago, just three months before our wedding. We all still feel his loss. Keep up your good work.
