In honor of my little brother, Ben

I've set a goal of raising $2,400 for suicide prevention and to support the Help Center's 24/7 crisis and suicide lines. Will you please help me reach my goal in honor of my brother Ben?

I'm running a 5K for the Help Center's Run For Your Life event in memory of my little brother, Ben, who lost his fight less than a month ago at the age of 24. I know $2,400 is an aggressive fundraising goal... but Benny once told me when he was little to always 'dream big.' Gifts in any amount are greatly appreciated, but all donations of $24 or more will receive a custom silicon bracelet (Ben's favorite thing to wear) directly from Bethany. If you didn't know Ben personally, please feel free to read his obituary to learn how loved he was.

The Help Center is the local 24-hour crisis and suicide line. They serve Gallatin and the surrounding 12 counties. Their line is open 24/7/365 for those in crisis, suicidal, needing resource referrals, concerned about a loved one, or someone to talk to. They are also one of two crisis centers in the state of Montana that answers the National Suicide Lifeline (1/800-273-TALK). Their services are free to everyone. 

Men are 3.5x more likely to commit suicide than females in the US, and Montana is regularly top-3 for suicides in the country. Please consider making a donation in honor of Ben and so many other outwardly strong men who are suffering silently. 

You can easily help me reach my goal of honoring my brother and supporting others in pain by donating just $24.

Please... don't be afraid to talk about your mental health needs and encourage your loved ones to do the same. Together, we can chip away at the stigma around depression and prevent other families from experiencing the heartbreak of losing someone too soon.
