Dear Friends,

Suicide doesn’t discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life, regardless of age, ethnicity or socio-economic status. According to a new government report, suicide over the past two decades is up 25% across the nation. In 2017, 45,000 people ended their lives and more than 1 million attempted.

Alive & Running started 20 years ago to support Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center, the nation’s first and an international leader in training, research and crisis services. We have innovated many strategies and programs for people in crisis over the years. This Fall, we will open the doors to our Center’s new Century City home, where we will be able to provide more crisis services, training and therapy/support groups – especially for children.

Please support Didi Hirsch’s 20th annual Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention on Sunday, September 30 on La Tijera Parkway in Los Angeles. Your donation will support the expansion of our Center and vital services, which include:

• Bereavement groups
• Support groups for survivors of suicide attempts
• Follow-up programs for high-risk callers
• Training for law enforcement, mental health professionals, students
and teachers
• Community outreach
• Suicide Response Team

I understand how busy everyone is, and realize that it may not be possible for you to attend. If this is the case, please consider making a donation by clicking the "donate" button.

If you would like to join my team, please visit my team page and click "Join Our Team":

It will be a lovely event and lots of fun! All registered runners, (or walkers!), will receive an "Alive & Running" t-shirt, refreshments, entertainment, as well as access to finish line festivities and our health & Fitness Expo!

Jeremy and I hope you can join us on the 30th,
