Why We Run: "I want to raise awareness and money for Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center and the important, lifesaving services they offer to people who are contemplating suicide, have attempted it or are grieving a loss. Every person who dies by suicide has a unique story, but they all have one thing in common: they were in terrible pain and had lost all hope. My sister died because she didn’t know how to voice her pain. I walk to give her a voice and to spread the word that hope and help are available." - Join Pamela and others a this year's Alive & Running 5k for Suicide Prevention: Link in Bio.

Today is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay. “There is a misconception that if they want to kill themselves, they are going to kill themselves, and that is not true. Suicide is preventable.” One of the best ways to help someone at risk of suicide is to seek help from resources like counseling centers and the suicide prevention lifeline 1-800-273-8255. You can also check out our stories and website to learn the warning signs and risk factors.

Why We Run: “Shedding light on the support that is available to those struggling with suicidal feelings and also the resources available to their loved ones is something that would resonate with our brother. So we move one step forward at a time to honor David’s memory in the hope that we can help others, the way our brother always did.” - Join Lima at this year’s Alive & Running 5k for Suicide Prevention: Link in Bio #aliveandrunning #erasingthestigma #mentalhealth #suicideprevention #suicidepreventionmonth #nationalsuicidepreventionmonth #recovery

“I walk because I hope Amir’s story can inspire someone who is in despair to reach out for help. I walk because I won’t let my pain and the anger take hold. I walk because my brother can’t fight anymore but I can and will.” Join Sangeen at this year’s Alive and Running 5k for Suicide Prevention September 29 (link in bio). #aliveandrunning #erasingthestigma #mentalhealth #suicideprevention #mentalhealthawareness

Find Your Anchor, @findyouranchorbox are boxes left in random places or given to people struggling with suicidal thoughts. These boxes include items like a list of suicide prevention resources, posters with hopeful messages, a deck of cards titled "52+ Reasons to Live," and a letter. Find Your Anchor creates an important resource and takes the time to show people they are cared for.
