Walk For Suicide Prevention

If you have been following our journey, you may be wondering what happened to our plans to walk 150-miles for suicide prevention. After three years of bigs walks and fundraising for AFSP, we ran into our first real snags this year. I hurt my back in November and though I always tend to believe that injuries are just temporary this one proved to be long lasting. I am finally beginning to have more pain-free moments that painful ones but with months of very little training I am certainly not up for 30 miles of walking a day. In the meantime, my sweet Megan came down with a horrible case of mono. So, this year's 150-mile trek will have to wait.

But don't worry. We are still working for Suicide Prevention. We are still raising awareness and we are still fundraising. On September 24th we will be joining Annapolitans for a Walk Out of the Darkness. I am heading a team of parents with the PFLAG organization to raise funds for AFSP and thanks to the generosity of a local quilter I am raffling off this beautiful modern quilt.

For a $10 donation to our walk for AFSP, you will receive a chance to win this quilt. I am only selling 100 tickets so you have a 1 in 100 chance of winning.

Please consider donating today. If you can't donate, please consider joining us for the walk on September 24th. I will be walking with PFLAG and encourage you to join us but there is also a group representing TEAM RWB, another of my favorite local organizations. Click here to donate or learn more about the walk. I will contact you to let you know you know your raffle number.
