Description

Reed was a sophomore at Etowah High School. He was a loving, smart, talented, well-liked and seemingly mentally healthy 15 year old when he took his own life on December 19, 2018. What none of us knew was that Reed was hurting...he was not okay. Reed didn't talk about his pain, and didn't show signs of depression, so no one knew he needed help coping with what was bothering him.  Every person that knew Reed was completely shocked that he ended his life. Signs of depression or anxiety are not always obvious.

Shortly after Reed's passing, we gave feet to our grief. LoveLikeReed, Inc. was created. This non-profit, 501(c)3 organization will honor Reed's life, by continuing his legacy of loving, helping, and serving others. Reed lived by the bible verse, "Love one another..." John 13:34 and that is what we will do!  Our mission is to erase the stigma that depression and anxiety carry and to help our local schools and community provide safe places for our children to talk to someone when they are hurting.  They need to know that It's OK To Not Be OK and when they share their feelings they can find hope and help to move past their current situation.  Let's keep talking about mental health so together we can save lives.

We are offering sponsorship opportunities in exchange for your company name/logo on a banner that will hang at the race. $100 gets your company logo or family name on the banner and the more you donate, the bigger your logo is!  I am so thankful to our first 12 donors who will be represented on the back of the race t-shirt!  Please use the "Donate" button and send your logo to amy.greene@comcast.net.  Thank you so much for your support in helping kids in our community.
