Due to social-distancing, we’re doing things a little differently this year. After 12 years of betting on the horses, our 13th Annual Race to Save Young Lives benefit will be held on-line for you to “attend” on Saturday, July 18.
We look forward to this opportunity to update you on our important work in middle and high schools this past year—even with the abbreviated school year. Prior to our live event which starts at 4:30pm, we will be offering opportunities for you to connect with team members to learn more about our mission.
Our preventative efforts will take on even more significance in the year ahead, as the current crisis will certainly take a toll on the mental and behavioral health of our youth. We are so appreciative of your ongoing support of our mission to prevent teen suicide and look forward to “seeing” you on July 18th.
