AFSP is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. The AFSP Minnesota Chapter serves all of Minnesota, bringing together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in their communities. We are excited to welcome our 2024 Team AFSP runners to the 48th Annual Grandma’s Marathon to raise funds for prevention programs, scientific research, public education, advocacy and support for survivors of suicide loss.

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.

Benefits:
• 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 
• Team AFSP Dinner the Friday night before the race.

Fundraising minimum $750 for the full and half marathon, $350 for the 5K. Your registration code for the race will be provided when you meet the race fundraising minimum. If a participant has raised zero dollars and does not communicate with the team captain, the participant may be removed from the team to allow someone from the waitlist to take their place.

If you sign up, please email Amanda Leininger at aleininger@afsp.org so we can send you additional details! Thank you for joining us in the fight to #stopsuicide.
