In Loving Memory of Tristen Hobbs

Our beloved son, Tristen took his life at the age of 15.  This came without warning or without words to any of his family that this was in his thoughts.  Tristen loved life and loved everybody.  He was known as being the class clown and putting others first.  Tristen had a love of dinosaurs and wanted to cave dive in Antarctica to recover frozen dinosaur DNA.  We want to continue Tristen's love for others and we want to help keep another person and their family from experiencing our pain.

The T-Man 5K was created in an effort to help honor our son's fearlessness, joy, and love for life and others.

We hope that all who attend and are able to participate will join us in the celebration of life, love, and the pursuit of educating our community about mental illness and that no one is alone in this illness.  It is ok to ask for help and if anyone has thought of taking their own life, you need to let someone know immediately.  Please go to a family member, a friend, or call a mental health professional by calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.

We look forward to many joining us in a day of reflection of the 15 beautiful years we had with Tristen and the life we still have left to live.  Let us all use this time as a time of reflection that as we run or walk, we remember that life is full of ups and downs.  It is up to all of us to take a moment to reflect, pause and know that as we look around us that we are not alone.  Remember to breathe through the peaks and valleys and to keep moving forward.
