About the Team
“Save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.”
This is AFSP’s mission statement. AFSP saves lives and provides hope through research, education and advocacy for the prevention of suicide and support to those affected by suicide.
Our Race for Hope team plays its role in those efforts by giving team members the opportunity to combine their athletic pursuits with fundraising for a cause they care about. As a team member you will be part of a network of athletes committed to raising awareness, remembering our loved ones, and reflecting on our own struggles. You will also be demonstrating to others that you have the dedication, perseverance and willingness to sacrifice that are necessary to complete the training for your race. Through your fundraising, you will help raise awareness of suicide and allow those that have lost a loved one to suicide and those that are struggling with suicidal thoughts themselves to know that they are not alone . . . to know that there is hope . . hope for recovery from loss and hope to prevent future suicides.
• Custom race jersey with your choice of images and text on the back.
• On-line fundraising page with credit card support.
• Fundraising tips and training suggestions.
