Come join us for a walk/run in Payson Park on October 12th to raise money for Suicide Awareness Voices of Education! Be one of the first 150 people to sign up and receive a free coupon and t-shirt from Olympia Sports!
According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, suicide is the leading cause of death in the developed world for people ages 15 to 49, which means that statistically, most people have been affected by it in some way. Yet despite the prevalence of the issue, the cultural stigma surrounding those with mental health problems is still very real. SAVE is committed to educating the general public about these brain illnesses, the symptoms, possible causes and the need for professional assessment and treatment. By educating the general public about these illnesses, treatment is encouraged, and the stigma associated with suicide and brain illnesses is reduced or removed.
Come show your support for SAVE and all the people affected by suicide! There will be food, music, speakers and prizes for
-Most money raised and
-Most creative t-shirt!!
You can sign up here or walk in at the event! Either way, we'd all love to have you!
However, if you cannot attend for whatever reason, it would be appreciated if you could consider making a donation. Not only are all donations tax deductible, but because the cause is close to so many people's hearts, even the smallest amount would be meaningful.
