Please join me in supporting Didi Hirsch’s 21st annual Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention on Sunday, Sept. 29. I will be running in memory of my father, Paul Woodrow.

The event 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.

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.

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.

A little late this year. Sadly, this is in memory of my friend's 22 y/o son who committed suicide 3 days ago. No words.
