The 7th Annual Run for Life! 5K benefiting the LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team of Tarrant County will be on Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at 8am located at Trinity Park, Shelter House, Pavilion #1; 2300 W 7th FW, Texas 76107.
Please join our community and Honorary Chairs, Scott and Pam Millican, as we race in memory of those who have died by suicide.
A few words from our Honorary Chairs, Scott and Pam Millican: In 2011, we lost our oldest daughter Lauren to suicide. We were desperate to align with those whose grief was as specific as ours, to guide us through our tragedy and help us understand "why". Through research, we learned about mental illness and the fact that so many don't understand suicide. We believe our story can help others and we are committed to erasing the stigma of mental illness so people who need help won't be afraid to seek it. We are both honored and humbled that you would choose us to serve in this role. We look forward to shining a light on mental illness as it is very important to both of us, and working with MHA and LOSS Team gives us an outlet to do just that. - Scott and Pam Millican
Mental Health America of Greater Tarrant County is committed to leading the community in suicide outreach, education, and prevention. A recent report from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office indicates that the number of suicides in Tarrant County is approximately 200 per year. And for every suicide, an estimated 60 people are intimately affected.
Because of these startling facts, we invite you to join us as a sponsor, and/or participant at the 7th Annual 5K Run for Life!5K. By partnering with the Run For Life, you will lend a hand in implementing new and much needed programs within our community, including the LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team, a group of volunteers assisting people who lost a loved one by suicide and providing support and resources for further coping. Because suicide statistics are rising in our country and throughout Tarrant County, any level of support you are able to offer will be greatly appreciated.
Join us for yoga, food trucks, live music and a safe space to raise awareness and remember those lives lost to suicide.
