RACE 4 A REASON
Race 4 A Reason Brandon is a driver!!!!!!!!!! love him!
We have all been working very hard to raise awareness and raising money for education and outreach programs for those who suffer from depression and those who have lost a loved one to suicide. The "Out of The Darkness Walk" is coming up this September 13th. We lost someone very close to us to suicide in December of 2002. We all as family and friends, banded together and persevered through love and support of each other. The Scarpelli family wants to help all who are affected by this horrific trauma. He suffered for years with his depressive illness and due to lack of knowledge and awareness, we couldn't help him. In his honor we want to reach out and help save the next person and their family.
"Every 16 minutes, someone in the United States dies from suicide. Every 17 minutes there is someone left to make sense of it."
My family was so fortunate in having amazing support and love from our extended family, our church and our friends. There are so many who don't have that and struggle alone after such a great loss. The Scarpelli family is committed to helping all that we can, but we need your help.
Below is the link to sponsor the "GO FAST-TURN LEFT" team. Please sponsor us and/or walk with us to stop this national health crisis. We would love it if you could all join. One dollar can help out a lot!!
85 cents of every dollar goes directly to AFSP's programs for research, education and survivor services.
Please forward to your family and friends and make a difference in someone's life.
EVERY dollar helps!!
