Hello family & friends,
It’s that time of the year! Our team’s page is now live & ready for those who would like to participate by running or donating. This will be my 6th year participating in honor of my brother, Manuel, & the third that I get to do so as a member of the Didi Hirsch team. Our OC SSS (Orange County Survivor Support Services) Team would like to invite you to join our team this upcoming Sunday, September 13th, 2020. This year our 5K will be a little different because of everything happening due to COVID-19 so we are going virtual. Looking at the positive, this means that even if you’re not in the LA area, you can participate with us
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!
