My family and I are very excited to be participating in this years Let's Walk, Let's Talk ... Stepping Together to Prevent Suicide Walk. Our dear friends lost their daughter Katie to suicide this past April and we will be walking in her memory. She always loved the beach and giving back to others so it was only natural to name our team Katie’s Warriors. I know she will be with us in spirit at Long Beach! Our son will also be performing his song “Never the Answer” which he wrote in her memory thanks to the LI Crisis Center.
Suicide accounts for 18 percent of deaths among people between the ages of 18-24. Sadly, most people who commit suicide feel like it is their only way out of a helpless feeling situation. However, most people who attempt suicide say they regret it.
Money raised from this event will be used to raise awareness of suicide prevention in our community.
Please help by sponsoring me or feel free to join our team and walk with us as one of Katie’s Warriors!
