Thank you to everyone who participated in the
2020 Virtual Life;Story 5K/10K Run and Walk for Depression Awareness and Suicide Prevention.
Life;Story looked considerably different this year, but the mission remained the same - to share the message that depression is common and treatable, suicide can be prevented, and to raise funds that will provide care for people with little to no resources. Depression and suicide are very serious issues in our communities and the virtual format allowed us to continue the good work of the event while maintaining social distancing, as we get through the pandemic together. We appreciate your grace and patience as we navigated this year's Life;Story format.
Runners, walkers, and donors participated from at least 15 states and the UK! It's exciting to know that the Life;Story message is being shared out into the world! Thank you for being a part of Life;Story this year.
"If you ever have any suicidal thoughts or feelings in the future, what I want you to try to remember is....we’re here because we care. We’re here because we want to bring you hope, and we want you to be here and continue your Life;Story.” – Melissa Larkin-Skinner, Centerstone Regional CEO at 2019 Life;Story event
