Every 13 minutes, someone dies by suicide in the United States and another 25 people attempt it. Twenty two members of the military, active or veterans, die by suicide every day. Many individuals suffer in silence. But when a person in crisis needs someone to listen and respond, Didi Hirsch's Suicide Prevention Center is here to help. In fact, more than 70,000 children, teens and adults turned to our 24/7 English-Spanish Crisis Line last year.
You can help save lives by supporting Didi Hirsch's 18th annual Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention. The event will be held on Sunday, September 25, 2016 at La Tijera Parkway in Los Angeles.
More than 2,000 runners, walkers and volunteers from all over Southern California will come together to raise awareness and funding for suicide prevention services. Children under 12 have their own "Kiddie-K". All proceeds benefit the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center and its ancillary programs for family members of someone lost to suicide.
Thank you for your support!
