Your fundraising efforts spark the conversations that inform our communities of the importance of suicide prevention while creating the resources necessary for AFSP's research, education, advocacy, and support programs. An early start is the key to success, so we're providing some incentive for you to register and launch your efforts right away!

The kit will contain:

Team Captains! Build your team to a total of 6 team members AND raise $250 or more as a team by August 31st**
You're eligible to earn the individual gift when you raise $150 or more by August 31st, but we have a bonus offer for team captains, only!
