This Fall Team Up for Hope joined thousands of people across the country who were walking to raise donations to aid The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
The AFSP is dedicated to its mission to save lives and provide support to those affected by suicide. They accomplish this by funding scientific research, providing education to the public, and advocating for public policies involving mental health and suicide awareness. In addition, they go above and beyond to support survivors of suicide loss and those affected by suicide.
This organization's mission is very near and dear to our hearts. Since our beginning, Team Up for hope has strived to bring awareness to the issues of mental health, drug addiction, and suicide. When we were given the opportunity to participate in the AFSP’s Out of the Darkness Orange County NY Community Walk we were very proud to participate.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, families, and friends we were able to raise an astounding $1,900 to donate to this cause. We are so thankful for the outpouring of support and encouragement we received to raise these donations.
We would also like to give a huge “thank you” to our president, Wayne Patterson, for organizing our participation in this event. Without his leadership, none of this would have been possible.
