For the second year in a row, I am running to raise money for SAVE - Suicide Awareness and Voices of Education. I am running in memory of my Mom, who struggled with depression for many years before taking her own life.
SAVE is a nationally renowned organization and is one of the first in the country to address the stigma around mental health and depression. SAVE focuses on six main program areas: Public Awareness, Education, Training and Consulting, Grief Support, Products & Resources, and Research and Innovation.
The pictures below are from when my mom ran Grandma's Marathon back when she was the age I am now. Please consider donating to SAVE in her honor.
