I am honoured to be running the BMO half-marathon this year as a member of the Run4Hope program in support of the Josh Platzer Society for Teen Suicide Prevention and Awareness. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for teens in Canada and is a subject that must be talked about openly.
I have known Jude Platzer for many years and admire the invaluable work she and the society have been doing by creating awareness, educating, and promoting dialogue both in schools and in the community.
We can all play a small part in reducing the stigma associated with depression and suicide.
Please join the discussion… make a donation…or perhaps even join us on the run.
