Support DC101's + Leidos' One More Light Team
In 2017, the world of music was rocked by the loss of Soundgarden's Chris Cornell and Linkin Park's Chester Bennington to suicide. It was at that point that I decided to use my platform at DC101 to raise awareness for the fight to #StopSuicide. I've spoken to countless people impacted by suicide and the first thing we discuss is how important it is that we TALK about it. Our goal is to continue to grow this conversation and create a culture that is smart about mental health through DC101 + Leidos’ One More Light, and we want you to join us!
Leidos is a company that tackles difficult problems. Mental health continues to be a priority on the global agenda and we all must work together to find a clear path forward. For that reason, Leidos has made a commitment to help find solutions and foster an environment that encourages mental well-being within our communities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), untreated mental disorders now account for more than 10 percent of the total global burden of all disease and, by 2030, depression alone will be the leading cause of disability around the world. With an issue this critical, it’s more important than ever that we work together to help fight the stigma associated with mental health and suicide.
Recent times have been challenging for many, so we are still here, united in our effort to fight suicide and to support AFSP’s mission to save lives and bring hope.
Please join DC101 + Leidos for the 2022 Washington, D.C. Out of the Darkness Walk and help us reach our fundraising goal. Over the past five years we have raised more than $200,000 and, this year, we hope to raise another $60,000+ in our sixth year!
Thank you for your support. I am honored to have you as a part of our team.
